ICYMI: Tally Hall's Rob Cantor made an epic video about Shia LaBeouf (the cannibal)

Posted By on Wed, Nov 5, 2014 at 3:58 PM

Remember Tally Hall, the funny, brightly-colored tie-wearing quintet from Ann Arbor who named their record after Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum? In recent years, the group's Rob Cantor (he used to wear the yellow tie in Tally Hall) has been busy out in L.A., working on music under his own name.

In case you missed it, Cantor released a live video of his song "Shia LaBeouf" last month, that "tells the true story of an actual cannibal," according to the YouTube description. "Epic" is a word that gets overused a lot these days, but consider this — Cantor managed to enlist the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir, a string quartet, aerial and ribbon dancers, and, yeah, actor Shia LaBeouf to make this video, which has gone viral for good reason.

Now this is entertainment. Enjoy below, or watch it on YouTube:
