He filmed himself watching a marathon of every movie he’s ever been in. He put a paper bag over his head that declared “I am not famous.”; He spent a day in a university elevator talking with students – even punching one of them in the face (per the student’s request, mind you).
So what does actor/performance artist Shia LaBeouf have up his sleeve for his next performance art installation?
Hitchhiking! As reported by People, LaBeouf is teaming up with frequent collaborators Rönkkö and Turner to hit the road and depend upon the kindness of strangers for transportation, with the whole thing to be documented by Vice.
During the 30-day road trip, fans can access the location of LaBeouf and company by following the GPS coordinates they’ll be tweeting, or by visiting the #TakeMeAnywhere website, where the group’s movements will be tracked.

“According to the website, the project is commissioned by the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as part of The Finnish Institute in London and MediaLive 2016,”; notes People.
Time reports that LaBeouf told Vice the project was about “making friends”; and “finding meaning”; in life, and he claims he’ll do anything asked of him (within reason, of course) by the people he meets during his journey.
The trip kicked off on Monday in Lyons, Colorado, where he had lunch at a microbrewery with fans, who say LaBeouf regaled them with stories about his father, whom he claimed was “a circus clown who juggled trained chickens.”; They posted a video of their experience on YouTube:
Brandon Glanton, one of the group to meet up with LaBeouf, told Time: “To have everyone sitting down there, having lunch with him, it was so cool that he was so receiving. He was more humble than you can ever imagine.”;
