Sia – Elastic Heart feat. Shia LaBeouf & Maddie Ziegler (Official Video)
What’s an artist to do when her last music video surpassed 400 million views on YouTube? Well, in the case of Sia, who charmed roughly that many viewers with her clip for “Chandelier,” the answer’s simple: Don’t mess with the formula.
Sia Furler has rereleased her smash hit – Elastic Heart with a stunning revamped music video starring Shia LaBeouf and Maggie Ziegler facing off in a steel cage.
If the mere pairing of the two stars weren’t weird enough, the video progresses into complete anarchy by pitting Ziegler and LaBeouf against each other in a huge birdcage-like structure, where they snarl, contort, crawl, and twirl around each other.
The choreography – and, yes, the slightly disturbing chemistry between the preteen and the 28-year-old actor — is hard to tear one’s eyes from. The video closes with 45 seconds of music-free interaction between Ziegler and LaBeouf that is, again, oddly moving.
It appears the narrative is likely to be a follow on from the story that started with Maddie’s performance in the Chandelier clip.
The official video for “Elastic Heart” directed by Sia and Daniel Askill. Choreographed by Ryan Heffington.
