Shia LaBeouf is now TikTok famous for his vocal chops.
On Saturday June 12, TikTok user @Kaylimadisyn uploaded a video of the actor being seen having breakfast at a booth in Heidi Restaurant. In just 24 hours, the video has already accumulated more than 3.6 million views.
“When you go out with your mom for breakfast and you haven’t even noticed Shia LaBeouf singing ‘happy birthday’ to your mom in the background…” she captioned the video.
In the video, LaBeouf watches the user’s mother while singing “Happy Birthday” to her. When the song ends, LaBeouf’s fist pumps air and gives him a round of applause.
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time LaBeouf has gone viral on the short video platform despite the lack of social media accounts.
In August 2020, TikTok user @ gtdubs91 whose name is Tyler Wilson shared a video of LaBeouf getting a COVID-19 nasal swab test. Wilson is based in Nashville while LaBeouf lives in Pasadena, California. It’s unclear exactly how he got the video for the Transformers actor, as the clip appears to have been filmed by LaBeouf himself.
Last month, LaBeouf made headlines after a judge ordered him to complete a judicial diversion program following his appearance in court on charges of battery misdemeanor and theft. At the end of his program, the charges will be dropped.
The program includes weekly therapy sessions, wearing a SoberLink device, random alcohol testing, and completing a 12-step program. In addition, he cannot own any weapon and must avoid violence. He must also stay more than 100 meters from the victim on whom he allegedly used physical violence before stealing his hat.
