Shia LaBeouf punches college student in face during 24-hour elevator ride

on February 21, 2016, 4:45pm

Shia LaBeouf spent the last 24 hours in an elevator at Oxford University for an art endurance live stream called #ELEVATE. The majority of the time LaBeouf spent conversing with college students, but at one point he encountered a performance artist with a piece of his own.

“I’m a performance artist. Can you help me with completion of my next piece by punching me in the face?” the student asked. When LaBeouf expressed hesitation, the student told LaBeouf “not to be a pussy.” He eventually obliged.

The whole thing was captured on video, but because the elevator doors were closed we don’t actually see the punch. We do, however, hear the thump.
