In a collaboration with students from Central Saint Martins art school in England, Shia LeBeouf shot 31 minutes of footage of him doing everything from humming a mantra to shouting like a crazy life coach on amphetamines. All of this was in front of a green screen, so of course, the internet would never, ever dream of re-appropriating any of it for comic purposes.

In fact, it wants you to stop thinking about that private part you’re probably thinking about right now. So just stop, come on. Arca, whose excellent debut album Xen was released last year, found this all out the hard way when his account was banned for posting the cover of his new single, Vanity .
