Happy Monday everyone! Miss your mornig cup of coffee? Well about a shot of Shia LaBeouf's dong instead? Welcome to the new video for Sigur Ros' "Fjogur Piano."

Commissioning a dozen filmmakers to create whatever comes into their head when listening to songs from the band's new album Valtari, Alma Har'el -- the filmmaker behind the acclaimed documentary "Bombay Beach" (read our review) -- had a different idea in mind. And then she met Shia LaBeouf. "We really had no idea what to expect from Alma. Originally she was going to film us on super 8 in Iceland all playing the piano lines from the song, but then she rang and said she'd met Shia LaBeouf and they'd changed the idea, that was the last we heard of the concept and she told us nothing about what was going on," said bassist Georg Holm. "At first I didn't know what to make of the video, because it is so full of ideas and confusion, but now I completely love it. It seems to have no beginning and no end, and just makes you think about what might and might not be going on. It's a puzzle and I think it's absolutely amazing."

Featuring interpretive dance, drawing on nude bodies, mild violence and some truly tripped out imagery, the video is both beautiful and bizarre. But what does it all mean? “[It's] about addiction to drugs, or sex, or anything–and how you get stuck in a cycle,” Har'el told the Wall Street Journal. “For me, it’s about not knowing how to get out of something without causing pain to somebody else.”

Anyway, check it out below and duh, it's NSFW.
