This is a Thing That Exists: Macauley Culkin is in a Band That Sings Velvet Underground Songs About Pizza

Well, you have to give Macauley Culkin credit: He really just does whatever he wants and doesn't worry about public perception. He's not showing up in straight to DVD movies or Dancing with the Stars in order to stay in the public eye. The last thing I remember seeing him in was a Sonic Youth video, and that was in 2004. Even so, did anyone imagine him showing up as a member of The Pizza Underground, which is apparently a band that exclusively spoofs The Velvet Underground songs by making them about pizza, "Weird Al" style? Sample lyrics include "I'm beginning to eat a slice" and "I'm waiting for the delivery man." According to their Bandcamp page, Culkin has contributed "percussion/kazoo/vocals" to the recording. Just remember when you're watching Home Alone this month, this is what he's using his residuals for.
