The Meaning Behind Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’ Video Finally Explained

Reactions to Sia’s Shia LaBeouf-starring Elastic Heart video have been mixed, with some viewers recently expressing their displeasure with its possible pedophilia connotations. Sia has already apologised to those who felt “triggered” by the video, and now notorious courters of controversy Funny Or Die have joined the debate with their very own Elastic Heart spoof.

In their video parody, titled To Catch A Predator: Elastic Heart Edition, Funny or Die have enlisted the help of Chris Hansen, the former host of To Catch A Predator – a Dateline segment which featured hidden camera operations aimed at catching potential sex predators.

Here Hanson ambushes and grills our Actual Cannibal Shia LaBeouf impersonator, who is fresh from cage fighting a 12-year-old dancer for the sake of art. What he concludes, you’ll have to watch and see.

For further information on the concept behind Elastic Heart, watch banana-face Sia explain it all in a behind-the-scenes clip.
