Shia LaBeouf is always doing "interesting" activities, from watching every movie that he starred in with fans to now spending 24 hours in an elevator.

This new endeavor that Shia took part in was an installation titled #ELEVATE, presented in partnership with artists Luke Turner and Nastja Säde Rönkkö.

The three of them sent 24 hours in an elevator, and invited visitors to "address the artists, the debating chamber, and the internet, so that their collective voices ay form an extended, expansive and egalitarian Oxford Union address.

But, the elevator project took a unique twist when a fan asked LaBeouf to punch him in the face and he complied in the name of art.

Page Six reports that an excited fan and Oxford University student approach LaBeouf and said "I'm a performance artists, can you help me with completion of my next piece by punching me in the face?"

The conversation continues:

"Oh man, you want me to punch you in the face?" LaBeouf replied. "I don’t want to punch you very hard!"

The student told LaBeouf not to be a "p—y," but the actor continued to balk at the request.

"I don’t like doing it though…I just met you."

The punch is audible in the video, but seriously, who would want to get punched in the face for art? Obviously that guy, watch the entire piece in the livestream video above.
