    Someone pls pick him up and pummel him.

    This will go over like a Led Zeppelin, just like the Joaquin Phoenix bearded dude performance art/documentary that was seen by NO ONE even after being dedicated to it for over a YEAR....

    Shia LaBeouf's latest offbeat art experiment has hit the road.

    The zany "Transformers" actor just launched a month-long hitchhiking voyage across the United States, during which he'll regularly tweet out his location coordinates in hopes of snagging a ride from a fan.

    LaBeouf, 29, teamed up with fellow creative spirits Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner for the free-flowing adventure, which they deemed #TAKEMEANYWHERE. Supporters can follow their progress on an interactive website hosted by Vice.com.

    The trio kicked off their journey near Boulder, Colorado on Monday and will continue the trek until June 23. At the conclusion of the expedition, the Finnish Institute in London and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art will display a documentary film chronicling their experiences

    LaBeouf, who cryptically tweeted out coordinates in the days leading up to the launch, chalked the venture up as the "most expansive and most intimate thing we've done" in a sit-down interview with Viceshortly before they began their trip

    "With these projects, we try to retain a naïveté-or that's the goal," he told the website. "The goal is to sorta stay naïve, stay impressionable, stay malleable."

    It's hardly the first time LaBeouf has flexed his experimental muscles for the sake of performance-art. He infamously stepped out on the International Film Festival Berlinale red carpet in 2014 wearing a paper bag over his head proclaiming, "I am not famous anymore."

    He also invited the public to watch him cry in a program titled #IAMSORRY that same year, then sat through a non-stop cycle of his own movies for three days in a Manhattan movie theater in an event billed #ALLMYMOVIES in 2015.

    I gotta admit he seems like an interesting fella and having a beer with him would be ok
    though crazy odd people can wear you down so too much of him would beat the daylights outta ya

    My only question is if he is ingesting bad chemicals or if his brain makes them on its own.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    The last time he did an art project he got raped by a woman:

    "In an interview with Dazed, the actor says that a woman ‘whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me’ during his silent performance art work #IAMSORRY"

    How funny would it be if nobody shows up when he tweets his coordinates?

    For once I hope there's an interstate serial killer out there on the loose and Dexter takes the month off.

    He seemed like an OK dude to get a beer with. Would be an interesting social experiment.

    If he comes to the Detroit area, I'll pick him up and ask him why he's in so much need of attention.

    I'd be more frightened to pick him up than a stranger.
