    (USA TODAY) -- After you're done watching Home Alone this holiday season, we've got another Macaulay Culkin video for you to watch.

    We'll admit, there's not much to it. Just the 33-year-old eating a slice of pizza.

    Despite the lack of action, the YouTube video has amassed nearly 270,000 views since it was posted Monday by Pizza Underground, Culkin's Velvet Underground cover band. And the clip isn't as random as you might think - it's based off a 1981 video of artist Andy Warhol eating a Burger King whopper on camera, shot in the same style and length as Culkin's one-man pizza party.

    After Culkin diligently opens a brown paper bag, he peppers the pizza (much like Warhol pouring ketchup on his burger) and then begins to eat.

    When he's all done, he sits there for a good minute before saying, "My name is Macaulay Culkin, and I just finished pizza." (Warhol's line: 'My name is Andy Warhol and I just finished eating a hamburger.')

    Weird or artsy - or both? That's your call.
