Watch: Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf in hilarious ‘Furby’ war spoof

Freya Drohan

Jimmy Kimmel might be on to a winner with this innovative take on Brad Pitt’s new movie ‘Fury’.

Fury, the World War II film starring Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman dominated the US box office over the weekend, prompting Kimmel to think about possibilities for a sequel.

According to Kimmel, the movie took in over €18 million on its opening weekend, knocking thriller Gone Girl off the top spot.

Fury centres on a team of hardened Allies who are making a final, dangerous push into Nazi territory.

In Kimmel’s “family friendly” vision, the soldiers instead have a stand off against an army of the nostalgic fluffy toys.

“Three hundred against five...I’m scared,” whispers Shia to Brad, in the imagined trailer for ‘Furby’.

Shia (28) has joked that Brad (50) feels more like a “husband” than a father figure.

Shia and Brad got extremely close while filming the picture, but the Transformers star reveals the nature of their relationship is not what it seems on the surface.

"No, I never looked at him like a father figure. He's like my husband," Shia told Us Weekly magazine. "He's daddy, I'm mommy."

In a feature with Interview magazine, Shia spoke about the impact his real father, Jeffrey LaBeouf, has had on his life.

"I looked up to my dad. And he doesn't have a Tom Cruise or a Tom Hanks kind of sensibility. He's in the Mongols biker gang. He's cut from a different kind of fabric, a different sensibility, a Vietnam veteran who came home disgruntled,” he explained to the publication.
