Just in case you weren’t convinced the Transformers actor couldn’t ace McEnroe’s angry slogan “YOU CAN-NOT BE SERIOUS!”, watch below as a curly-afroed LaBoeuf belts out the phrase made famous in 1981’s Wimbledon competition.

Borg v McEnroe will follow the tennis rivalry between McEnroe and Swedish star Björn Borg (played by Sverrir Gudnason), one that climaxed in the 1981 Wimbledon where – SPOILERS AHOY – John McEnroe came out on top through four tense sets.

This’ll be one to watch with hawk-eyes.
