Throughout the video, the Even Stevens alum confirmed his name and date of birth before chatting with the healthcare worker administering his test. Shia then asked her name and responded with, “Good name.” Viewers then watched as he received the test, which was administered by putting a cotton swab up Shia’s nose and holding it there for 10 seconds.
“Aw, you got a sweet touch,” Shia said after the test was removed. Then, he thanked the healthcare worker before the video came to an end.
As it turned out, Tyler actually got the clip from Shia’s theater company, Slauson Rec’s official Twitter account! After it started to gain more views, fans took to social media and expressed their love of the clip.
“Tell me why watching this vid of Shia LaBeouf getting a COVID test made me fall in love [with] him more?” one person wrote. Another added, “I can’t stop watching Shia LaBeouf getting tested for COVID.”
A third said, “Someone uploaded a video of Shia LaBeouf getting a COVID test on TikTok 8 hours ago, but it’s not from Shia’s own account… But anyways I’ve watched the video on loop so many times [because] his voice is just.”
