Sia, Elastic Heart, Shia LaBeouf


Shia LaBeouf strips down to his skivvies in the music video for Sia's hit "Elastic Heart"—which also features "Chandelier" dancer (and Dance Moms star) Maddie Ziegler.

The two engage in a choreographed caged fight within the confines of a warehouse throughout the five-minute video.

Maddie is dressed in the same nude-colored leotard and platinum blonde wig that she wore in "Chandelier," and also performs with the same similar dance style.

But while viewers may rush to the conclusion that the video is a sequel to Sia's earlier mega-successful single, the Grammy nominee has yet to address anything head on.

She did, however, take to Twitter earlier this week to thank the dancing duo for their participation.

"I love you @maddieziegler," she wrote, adding, "I love you Shia @thecampaignbook. Magic is about to happen."

The Sia and Daniel Askill-directed music video heavily features the same interpretive dance and visual elements as "Chandelier"—right down to the color scheme.

This isn't the first time that LaBeouf has starred (or shown major skin) in a music video either.

Back in 2012, he went full-frontal in Sigur Rós' video for ''Fjögur piano.''

Director Alma Har'el told Nowness that the actor found him for the project, rather than the other way around.

"Shia just found me. He randomly picked up my film Bombay Beach at Amoeba records on Sunset Boulevard and watched it at home. I got back late that night and there was an email that simply said, 'Hello my name is Shia LaBeouf and I'm a big fan of your work. Can we open a dialogue about working together in the future?' I just wrote back, 'Is this a joke?' But it wasn't, and we went to dinner the day after."
