Live Video: Shia LaBeouf's Talking to Fans in an Elevator for 24 Hours

Back in November, Shia LaBeouf held the world's/at least Fuse's attention by watching all his movies over three straight, nonstop days in Manhattan's Angelika Film Center—and livestreaming his reaction/his napping visage through the whole thing.

Now he and Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner—his artist collaborators on #ALLMYMOVIES and #IAMSORRY—are standing in an elevator at Oxford University for 24 hours. This one's called #ELEVATE. It's also being livestreamed, above, with clear audio of the engaging conversations. At 8PM tonight (Feb. 19), the trio will speak at the Oxford Union, then resume their endless elevator ride.

Here's word from Oxford:

“Visitors will be able to join LaBeouf, Rönkkö and Turner inside the elevator during this time, and are invited to address the artists, the debating chamber, and the internet, so that their collective voices may form an extended, expansive and egalitarian Oxford Union address."

A few things we've heard so far:

-Asked if he prefers L.A. or England: "Geography is null and void now. The same culture that exists in L.A. exists here."
-Shia saying he aimed for this avant garde "talk" can be "egalitarian like the internet"
-On Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps: "Wall Street movies are never really that interesting. They're never really honest. ... I'll never go back there. It's really not a nice environment."
-Lots of Bill Murray analysis and love
