Even if Sigur Rós isn’t your favorite band, I bet you’re going to want to see their latest video. As hard as it might be to pronounce the music video’s title, I’m guessing “Fjögur Píanó” are going to be the two Icelandic words you’ll remember for a while. Sigur Rós’s new video features a full-frontal nude Shia LaBeouf.
If by any chance you saw “Transformers” or “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull” then you definitely know who Shia LaBeouf is and you could appreciate the idea of him posing nude. But if the movie genre isn’t exactly on your favorites list, I’m thinking watching Sigur Rós’s new music video would have you running at the rental store.
Sure, Shia LaBeouf isn’t your manliest man or the raciest, but there’s a certain something about him that really draws the eye. Not to mention that Shia LaBeouf looks so sexy in the artsy music video. There’s some experimental dancing, lustful movements and his partner is a racy blonde woman who really contrasts the “Transformers” star.
Filmmaker Alma Har’el explained the seven-minute almost erotic music video is meant to show “a man and woman locked in a never-ending cycle of addiction and desire”. Har’el explained for the Wall Street Journal that having full frontal nude Shia LaBeouf in the music video isn’t meant so sell something.
“That’s the difference between working within a corporate system and something that artistically takes you places you wouldn’t expect. To me, it’s erotic, but it’s not selling anything” said Har’el. The filmmaker is also aware that some people might not get the message about drugs or sex addiction and how it feels getting stuck in a cycle. “For me it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else. For other people it might be about candy and fish. I’m down with that” said the director.
Having Shia LaBeouf in nude and rubbing his partner’s naked breasts with bandages wasn’t exactly something Sigur Rós was expecting. The band said they always give filmmakers the freedom to do whatever they want when they hear their music. “We don’t want to tell anyone how to feel and what to take from it. With the films, we have literally no idea what the directors are going to come back with”.
