Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin has sent social media into a frenzy by recreating scenes from the popular Christmas movies that were released some 28 years ago.
The minute-long clip is an ad for Google and demonstrates how a grown-up Kevin McCallister now has no problem keeping his house safe from “the wet bandits” with the help of Google Assistant.
Culkin jumps on his parents’ bed and watches Angels with Even Filthier Souls — a black and white gangster film made specifically for the Home Alone franchise — before scaring off Harry and Marv with a dancing cut-out of NBA star Kevin Durant.
The 38-year-old tweeted the video on Wednesday with the caption: “#heygoogle have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult? Me neither. But just in case you’re curious you should totally watch this #ad.”
Fans of the film took a strong liking to the nostalgic video, which has since been watched more than three million times and retweeted 82,000 times.
“One of the best uses of pop culture/celebrity to sell a product I’ve ever seen,” replied Shannon Plante.
“Home Alone is the best Christmas movie of all time and I just cried watching this commercial,” wrote Dave Quinn.
