Kiefer Sutherland (search) stunned a group of small-town New Zealand women with an impromptu strip routine at a club in the North Island community of Raetihi (search).

Sutherland slipped out of his socks and whipped off his shirt, waving it above his head to the tune of the Tom Jones' (search) hit "You Can Leave Your Hat On" at Raetihi's Cosmopolitan Club, the New Zealand Herald newspaper reported.

The women were watching Men of Steel — a male revue act — and Sutherland was drinking at an adjoining bar before deciding to join the act, the newspaper said. The 37-year-old actor, star of television's action-thriller "24," was then ushered off the stage.

The incident occurred last Thursday but wasn't reported until Wednesday.

"Kiefer had a hell of a night," club President Danny Mills told The Associated Press. "He had an enjoyable evening and so did everyone that was here."

Mills added: "He's coming back in August, mate, and as far as we're concerned we want him back in here."

Sutherland is in New Zealand filming "River Queen," which tells the story of an Irish immigrant during the 18th-century wars between indigenous Maori and colonial settlers.

His movies include "Taking Lives," "Flatliners," "Young Guns" and "Stand by Me."
