If you told us this time last year that James Franco would be responsible for the strangest potty training video we’d ever seen… well, we probably would have believed you actually.
The actor/writer/filmmaker has found his next muse in Shia LaBeouf!
The Fury star’s crazy pants “Just Do It” video is apparently just as fascinating to James as Kanye West‘s Bound 2 video.
Only this time, he’s talking about pooing.
See James’ crappy take on the motivational speech AND find out what’s up with the original anyway (below)!
If you somehow haven’t seen the original by now, here it is in all its glory:
Yeah, so why did Shia make this anyway??
While this is technically a performance art piece, it isn’t Shia’s art.
The actor was donating his time to a London art school named Central Saint Martins, whose students were given an assignment to write a short script for a professional actor to read in front of a green screen.
Shia actually filmed 36 of these in one day, and it’s a testament to Shia’s intensity that one of the clips went viral.
Of course, the green screen didn’t hurt. It allowed people to put him into all sorts of situations.

So does James Franco have the best parody? Or is it one of these?
