Macaulay Culkin And 'The Pizza Underground,' What's It All About?

If we could have one guess at what Macaulay Culkin is up to right now, it’s that he’s Home Alone sulking. OK, just kidding! We had to slip that one in somewhere, and it’s actually quite a likely guess.

The 33 year old actor, best known for his role in the Home Alone films, angrily left the stage this week when crowds began booing him and his band. Culkin and his comedy band, The Pizza Underground, were performing at Nottingham’s Rock City as part of the Dot to Dot festival when the incident took place. He was alleged to have stormed off the stage after a group of audience members decided enough was enough and began throwing full pints of beer at the band.

We can’t possibly understand why the band, which parodies Velvet Underground and replaces song lyrics with the word “pizza,” wouldn’t have been an immediate hit. Even their version of Lou Reed’s song, which they have renamed, “It’s a Pizza Day,” failed to win over the audience. If the whole premise of the comedy band doesn’t sound strange enough, in reality things get even weirder.

The Pizza Underground is made up of a bunch of tone deaf, shaggy haired men, who perform pizza based songs while one of them taps on a pizza box with a drum stick. All band members wear dark sunglasses in the style of Velvet Underground, although unfortunately The Pizza Underground have none of the legendary rock band’s talent or panache.

Culkin and co were on stage for just 15 minutes before they finally gave in and retired, drenched in beer. Trying hard to persevere and calm the audience so they could continue doing their thang, Culkin initially tried to reason with them, shouting, “Why are you throwing these? I’d rather drink them!” Eventually realising he was fighting a losing battle, he told the audience, “That’s the end of the show, goodnight.”

One anonymous audience member told the Nottingham Post: “It just sounds awful, I can’t believe he is doing this. Why bother? It must go down well in America or something.”

The quintet of questionably talented comedians/musicians (you tell us which one) have uploaded various videos on YouTube. One video shows Culkin eating a slice of pizza in a parody of Andy Warhol eating a hamburger. The whole thing has the feeling of a joke that nobody understands other than the band, who feel very clever indeed for thinking of it.
