Macaulay Culkin trended last Friday, and it is not because of Home Alone reruns.
Culkin uploaded a video on YouTube showing himself eating pizza. The title is creatively titled “Macaulay Culkin Eating a Slice of Pizza,” which is basically what he does the entire time. The four-minute video features the child star chomping down on the dish with pepper as his flavouring.
This is a tribute to Andy Warhol’s video in 1981 wherein the artist ate a burger on cam.
The similarities between the two videos are striking. Culkin and Warhol both struggle in putting condiments on the dishes because of the dispenser. Culkin even mimics Warhol’s line, “It’s not coming out,” when he put pepper on the pizza slice.
In the 1981 video, Warhol ended the scene with the line: “My name is Andy Warhol and I just finished eating a hamburger.” Culkin, on the other hand, says a similar line, “My name is Macaulay Culkin and I just finished pizza.”
As of posting time, the video has garnered over 534,000 views.
