Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt Rock Out on Drums in a Subway Tunnel
He's an actor, he's a producer, and now he's a street performer. Joseph Gordon-Levitt shared a video on Facebook Saturday, in which he lugged a drum kit down into a subway tunnel and proceeded to rock out as part of his "Everyday, Spectacular" project.
We're not sure what's more surprising—that Levitt is really good at the drums or that no one seems to recognize him during his performance!
He's wearing his signature look—a suit and skinny tie—as he plays a blue drum set staged on the subway platform. Most people waiting for trains glance over at him, but no one seems to recognize the star. In fact, the only person who says anything remarks that he "looks like Pee-wee Herman a little bit." See the video here:
As part of the "Everyday, Spectacular" project, which Levitt is hosting in partnership with LG and HitRecord, he wants other performers to put on shows in unconventional settings. On the HitRecord website, he explains that "I want to challenge musicians, singers, dancers, and performers of any kind to go into an ordinary setting, and make a spectacular moment out of that everyday situation. You can sing, dance, play around, dress up in costumes, do any kind of extraordinary activity."
In Levitt's Facebook post, he challenges his fans, saying, "I played the drums (in a subway) for our 'Everyday, Spectacular' project—now, where are all you musicians gonna play your instruments?"
Some lucky musicians may also get the chance to perform with Levitt himself. In the comments, he wrote that he's looking for singers and bass, percussion, and horn players to be on a track with him. It's definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity—if you have what it takes, that is.
