Macaulay Culkin decided to grant us a happy Monday and be this week’s most talked about selfie on Twitter Sunday when he used his cover band, The Pizza Underground’s feed to send out a shot of himself wearing a priceless t-shirt. The shirt is a picture of Ryan Gosling wearing a t-shirt of Macaulay Culkin; today the minds of everyone everywhere are officially blown.
Originally the photo of Ryan Gosling sporting a young Macaulay Culkin t-shirt was tweeted by @KristoferSamie in May of 2013. One great photo deserves another and it was totally worth the wait. The explosion across social media this morning has garnered more exposure for the band and reminds us Culkin still has the power over us.
Culkin has moved passed news of his breakup with Mila Kunis after an eight year relationship and his alleged drug abuse over the past few years and proven he is much more than that kid from “Home Alone” with his involvement with an art collective and most recently his work with The Pizza Underground. His contributions to the band include percussion, Kazoo and vocals according to their website.
The Pizza Underground rewrites lyrics from Velvet Underground songs changing them to honor instead pizza. With songs entitled “Papa John Says”, I’m Beginning to Eat the Slice”, “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice” and “Cheese Days” they seem destined for greatness with or without their most famous member. They recently played shows in Boston and locally in Pomona, Ca earlier in May and have been building buzz through social media due in part to the addition of Culkin.
This whole thing makes everyone else’s’ lives seem so pointless.
