One man remarked, "Whoa! You look like Pee-Wee Herman."

Joseph Gordon-Levitt recently called on performers to show off their talents in public settings, and in a new video, he took to the Los Angeles metro to heed his own advice.

The Snowden actor set up a drum set at a subway stop and gave passersby a show, all as part of a collaborative project between the actor’s HitRecord and LG called "Everyday, Spectacular." Gordon-Levitt didn't get much attention in the moment, other than one man who remarked that he looked like Pee-Wee Herman. But it has the internet talking.

"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," Gordon-Levitt explained on HitRecord, his online production company. "You can sing, dance, play around, dress up in costumes, do any kind of extraordinary activity. 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."

About his impromptu performance, the actor wrote on Facebook: "I asked you guys to play music in public. For my part I played drums in a subway."
