Here's James Franco's Parody of Shia LaBeouf's Motivational Speech

It was only a matter of time before these parodies started popping up.

On Monday, a 30-minute video popped up showing Shia Labeouf giving a very interesting motivational speech. "Something is happening. Beauty's at work through pure and selfless acceptance," he begins, standing in front of a green screen.

Aside from putting on a "motorbike" helmet and offering up poetic prose and metaphors during the speech, Shia starts screaming loudly, "Just do it!" He continues, "Don't let your dreams be dreams! Yesterday you said tomorrow, so just do it! Make your dreams come true, just do it!"

#INTRODUCTIONS from Rönkkö & Turner on Vimeo.

Shia created the video with a group of fine art students from Central Saint Martins in London as a part of their #Introductions video project. And what an introduction it was.

Just a day later, James Franco posted his parody of the speech, showing himself standing in a bathroom in an Adidas shirt and underwear for a video called "Just Poo It." In it, he screams with intensity, "Just do it! Just do it! Just poo in the toilet! Do you want to keep pooping in your little diapers?! Just Poo it!"

So far, Shia hasn't responded to James' parody, but before the Fury star posted his motivational speech to Twitter, his last tweet was this: In the words of Jaden Smith, "Shia LaBeouf is life."
