In case you aren’t totally up to date with Shia LaBeouf’s latest art projects, back in May this year he started a new performance piece called TAKEMEANYWHERE.

Lasting 30 days it involved LaBeouf and two accomplices, artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, tweeting their location as GPS coordinates with the hashtag #TAKEMEANYWHERE.

Then, anyone could head along to that location, pick them up, and take the three of them wherever they choose before dropping them off. The group then repeated this until the 23 June 2016 all the while letting the public dictate their path across the US. Their path was mapped online so people could track them and see where they were at.

LaBeouf told VICE that the project was about “making friends” and “trying to find meaning, make meaning” while also saying that “We don’t really know where the show’s gonna take us.”

As you can imagine plenty of fans and curious people took LaBeouf and his fellow travelers up on their offers of a lift and the three have traveled to Colorado, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona and California—right across the US.

Among those people were two BYU students, Scott Daly and Hank Hansen, who documented their quest to find and pick up LaBeouf in a video titled “Two Days With Shia” (above).

It turned out to be quite the adventure too, as they ended up driving for miles and miles trying to get to him. They kind of stalked him across a few states, camping out in their car, monitoring the website, putting in the detective work to ensure they could get to him and give him a damn lift somewhere.

It wasn’t easy though, after heading out from Provo, Utah they missed him on several occasions often being beaten by other eager fans.

When they did finally get to him they’d been chasing him for 19 hours and nearly 1,000 miles. But it was worth it because not only did they pick him up at Lake McConaughy Omaha, Nebraska but they also seemed to have a lot of fun too. Plus it’s also about the journey, not just the destination, right?
