Like a dog returning to its vomit, the creators of viral Internet hits cannot help but try to recreate past successes. Most of the time this is a terrible idea, but this new Shia LaBeouf video is a rare exception.
Rob Cantor’s surreal comedy song Shia LaBeouf won hearts and minds back in 2012 with its deadpan narration of a horror story about “actual cannibal” Shia LaBeouf. Soon, Tumblr was overflowing with parody videos, the song had its own Know Your Meme page, and the Washington Post was publishing a mini-profile on songwriter Rob Cantor, who is better known for his work with the band Tally Hall.
Now, Cantor is back with an extended Shia LaBeouf video adaptation that can only be described as epic.
Ten-second summary: Supernatural, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Torchwood, A Song of Ice and Fire, Firefly, Elementary, Community, Dexter and the Avengers. 99% of my stuff is reblogs, but I do intersperse them with witty remarks on occasion. I'm probably a lot less clever than I think I am, but I do think I'm terribly clever so I don't know if that's saying much. I'm Australian. I'm sarcastic. I'm rather nerdy. I talk too much.
Feel free to follow me, I know I do.
