Pics or it didn't happen, right?

Funnily enough, Joseph Gordon Levitt had to provide his own evidence of performing a drum solo on a Los Angeles subway platform because while a few people stopped to listen, no one seemed to notice it was him. 

Or they didn't care. Probably a combination of both? 

We feel like it would be difficult not to recognize Levitt, who was in his official patented uniform– a skinny suit and tie. 

Really though, for us, the first thing we noticed was that the L.A. subway system is hella clean. Damn. Step up, MTA.

The video was posted for his show HitRecord's "Everyday Spectacular" project.

"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," Levitt says on HitRecord's website.

"These performances will be recorded from the standpoint of a passerby. So in the end, we’ll have a big, vibrant, beautiful, spectacular, collaborative piece of art."

Would New Yorkers notice JGL? Who knows? We've had our share of celebrity surprises in the subway. Then again, we've also had our share of incredible performances that weren't celebrity stunts, like this dude. And this lady.


Would New Yorkers give a sh*t about JGL? Probably not. Like, dude, some of us were stupid enough to sit through that steaming dumpster fire of a movie, The Walk. It was awful. 

Check out the video below. Or don't. 

We're going to have to agree with the gentleman on the subway– he really does look like Peewee Herman in that suit.
