Watch a Very Strange New Sigur Rós Video, Starring Shia LaBeouf [NSFW]

This morning, Sigur Rós released the video for “Fjögur Píanó,” from their new album Valtari, and for eight minutes of sleepy chord progressions, there’s certainly a lot going on: high-concept bondage, friends eating psychedelic lollipops in an underwater car, dead butterflies, lace blindfolds, violent sex and, oh yes, all of it starring a naked Shia LaBeouf crying and smiling at the same time. The video, written and directed by Alma Har’el, was created as part of the band’s “Valtari Mystery Film Experiment,” wherein the band asks filmmakers “to create whatever comes into their head when they listen to songs from the band’s new album Valtari. The idea is to bypass the usual artistic approval process and allow people utmost creative freedom.” All we can say is, add this to the time he directed Marilyn Manson’s “Un Chien Andalou macabre Macbeth” video for “Born Villain” and boy, Shia LaBeouf has sure come a long way from his Even Stevens days. No matter how naked you get, or how grimy your hair becomes, we still remember.
