Rob Cantor, a bearded singer-songwriter and sometimes celebrity impressionist, has created a viral sensation with his song, “Shia LaBeouf.” First released two years ago as an animated video, “Shia LaBeouf” told the story of a cannibalistic version of the star that has had more bizarre twists and turns in his career than a M. Night Shyamalan film. Two years later, Cantor recorded a live performance for fans’ viewing pleasure. And this stage performance has everything: the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, dancers in papier-mâché LaBeouf head masks, glitter falling from the ceiling, a Children’s Choir singing the words “Shia LaBeouf,” and the actor himself sitting alone in the audience watching it all go down.
It’s almost too good to be true… but it all happened on video.

At least now we know, it wasn’t temporary insanity or an inability to deal with fame, it was the whiskey that made you do it. At least that’s what he told Jimmy Kimmel last night.

We’ve all had our rough patches. We don’t know a single person who hasn’t had a minor meltdown, a hissy fit, or even a mild psychotic break (everyone has That Cousin). But when A-list celebrities freak-out, they’re just so extra with it. They take it to a whole new level, make it theatrical. If it’s a really good meltdown, it could even look like performance art.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has delivered beautiful bodies, thrilling upsets, and attractive fans far too pretty to stay put in the stands.
