NSFW or Art?!

Is Shia LaBeouf getting his Disney dick out for Sigur Rós' new video art?

Get your kit off on screen as a woman, and everyone thinks you’re a hoe. Do the same as a man, and everyone admires your ‘commitedness’ or ‘bravery’ as an actor. It’s bullshit, but hey, if it works for Michael Fassbender and Harry Potter, surely it’ll work for Shia LaBeouf, Disney alumnus and hugely irritating torchbearer of the Indiana Jones franchise? Right guys?

LaBeouf gets his dick out in the video for Sigur Rós’ new single, "Fjögur Píanó." To be fair, he does loads of stuff to convince us that this is a big arty statement: He contemplates a butterfly. He punches a mirror. He does some ballet in his pants. His baleful, watery-gaze and ratty hair-do suggest a man trying hard — too hard, perhaps — to dispel the public’s image of him flirting with Megatron.

Isn’t it time to get to the bottom of this NSFW malarkey once and for all? Is all this gratuitous T&A really in the name of art? Why can’t fannies just mean fannies and dicks just mean dicks?
