'home alone' with google: macaulay culkin reprises role in advert

if you haven’t had your fill of viral content yet this festive season then don’t worry. google has teamed up with macaulay culkin to release an advert for google assistant and its band of products that will keep you going. the advert recreates some of the film’s most iconic scenes, 28 years after the film’s original release.

in the ad, culkin’s reprisal of the role as kevin sees him adopt the same routine: jumping on the bed, taking a shower, and making some dinner before foiling a good old fashioned robbery. the difference is, google assistant is there to give him a hand.

google assistant replies: ‘you have one event called, ‘house to yourself.’

the set of nostalgic scenes continues, reimagining the classic ‘keep the change, ya filthy animal’ pizza delivery, to ‘operation kevin’ with mannequins in the living room’. everything from the house exterior to the wallpaper is spot on. this time around however, the cardboard cutout isn’t of michael jordan but kevin durant and it moves with the help of a roomba, not an electric toy train.
