Proof That National Treasure Shia LaBeouf Transcended In 2015

And we haven't even reached peak Shia.

It's hard to find the right words to describe Shia Labeouf -- artist, actor, national treasure, gift from the gawds -- and it's even harder to pinpoint the exact moment we all realized that Shia had surpassed our expectations.

When did Shia make the leap from Joaquin Pheonix/Jame Franco-esque artist/actor to Shia LaBeouf, legend and Marina Abramović-level artist? When did his path truly become his own?

Was it the moment he started rocking this rattail? Or the day he chopped it off?

Was it real or was it a clip-on?

It could have been the day he taught us how to properly wear sweats.

Did it happen when he allowed us to watch him watch himself?

Watching Shia LaBeouf watch Shia LaBeouf was pretty cool.

Or the day he allowed his inner lumberjack to flourish by carrying some logs?


Whatever happened to those logs?

Maybe things changed when he shared the rhythmic sound of his heartbeat with the world.

Someone out there probably made a bomb beat with this.

Or showed us that, in reality, we actually have three hands.


Why use your hands when you can use your mouth?

Was it that time he motivated us to live our best lives and JUST DO IT?

Seriously, get out there!

Did it all begin with Sia's "Elastic Heart" video?

Shia LaBUFF.

Or maybe it occurred when we touched his soul.

Cause when that hotline blings it's probably Shia.

Honestly, I don't know when shia labeouf became SHIA LABEOUF, but I do know that if 2015 is any indication, then 2016 is going to be one hell of year for our boy.
