Macaulay Culkin’s Pizza Underground Releases Debut Video, Performs Medley of Velvet Underground Parodies
Macaulay Culkin‘s Pizza Underground band has released its first video, and if you were wondering how long Mac and the gang might stretch the joke of playing pizza-themed covers of Velvet Underground songs, here’s the answer: 3:28 and counting.
In the clip, shot for Noisey by director Adrian Arredondo, Culkin and company deliver a medley of reworked Velvets favorites, transforming ‘All Tomorrow’s Parties’ and ‘Femme Fatale’ into ‘All the Pizza Parties’ and ‘Pizza Gal,’ respectively. They even cheese up the Lou Reed classic ‘Walk on the Wild Side,’ which becomes ‘Take a Bite of the Wild Slice.’
Best of all, Culkin plays with a greasy slice affixed to his face, showing the kind of commitment to his art that, however misguided, Reed might have respected. Or not.
