Shia LaBeouf is back at it again with the crazy so-called "performance art".

Over the next 30 days, the actor and his collaborators Nastja Ronkko and Luke Turner, are going hitch-hiking in in Colorado and they're inviting people to take them anywhere.

The hashtag is literally #TakeMeAnywhere - they're tweeting GPS coordinates from random locations and getting strangers to pick them up and take them wherever they feel like going.

Could be a diner, could be a party, could be a random basement in a remote location where no one can hear them scream - safety doesn't really seem to be paramount in this particular piece of art.


Those of us not driving around in Colorado can track the group via an interactive website, but that's really the only safety measure in place; they have no outside crew or follow cars whatsoever - just three guys hitchhiking with strangers.

Speaking to Vice, LaBeouf said hitchhiking was the "ultimate collab" and the project was all about "making friends".

This isn't even the weirdest La Beouf's performance art has gotten.

In 2014, he sat in a gallery with a paper bag over on his head which had "I am not famous anymore" written on it, and he invited fans to come and watch him cry.

He's live-streamed his heartbeat online, done interviews with fans via webcam, and once sat in a movie theater and watched all of his own movies back to back, while live streaming his reactions.

La Beouf plans to document his hitchhiking travels for a film which he intends to show at the Finnish Institute of London and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
