Former child star Macaulay Culkin stunned fans in New York on Friday by performing a bizarre pizza-themed concert as the frontman of his new Velvet Underground tribute band.

The “Home Alone” star recently released a demo tape with his new act, The Pizza Underground, featuring the cheesy covers “I’m Waiting for Delivery Man” and “Take a Bite of the Wild Slice,” and they played their first show at a bar in Brooklyn this weekend.

The actor, who also performed a solo during the eight-minute set, was later seen with his bandmates handing out pizza to the bemused crowd.
