Inspiration comes from the places you’d least expect to find it. In a video by a student of Central Saint Martins, a London-based arts college, actor Shia Labeouf delivers an intense, motivational speech, consisting mainly of the words ‘Just Do It’, shouted repeatedly in front of a green screen. After quickly going viral, the video has now become a source of mashups, parodies and questions about Labeouf’s mental health.
In one mashup, the actor is seen imploring Frodo Baggins to “Do It”, in another, he says the words to the tune and backdrop of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”. The original video, not counting any of the numerous remakes, has been watched over 6 million times since May 27.
