LOS ANGELES, Aug. 16 (UPI) — Joseph Gordon-Levitt jammed out on the drums on an L.A. subway platform to promote a new collaborative art project with his production company hit RECord.

In the video, posted Saturday, Gordon-Levitt, decked out in a suit and skinny tie, set up a six-piece drum set and started playing a short song while the trains were loading.

According to the video’s YouTube title, Gordon-Levitt recorded the video as his contribution to his production company hit RECord’s “Everyday, Spectacular” project which encourages performers to practice their craft in an ordinary situation.

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 said in a blog post about the project on his website. “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.”
