During Christmas time, “Home Alone” is one of the most popular movies to watch. Lead star Macaulay Culkin recreated iconic scenes from the film in a new Google ad.
The ad is promoting the Google Assistant that sets reminders, lets you see who is at your front door, changes the temperature in the house, and much more.
In “Home Alone,” Kevin McCallister wakes up and realizes he is home alone when his family leaves for Paris and forgets him. He sets traps around the house when he realizes two robbers are trying to break into the house.
Culkin was just 9 when he played in the iconic role. Now, the 38-year-old is by himself again.
Many iconic scenes including “keep the change ya filthy animal” and the infamous aftershave scene were just two moments Culkin reenacted.
He is jumping on the bed again, but this time asks Google to remind him to buy some items, and his back goes out. When he orders a pizza this time, he has already paid for it online and can enjoy his mac-and-cheese when the robbers decide to come.
If the movie was set in 2018, this is what it would look like. Technology would have made life easier for McCallister when he was faced with the troubles no 8-year-old should have to endure. His parents could have communicated with him better through cell phones or the internet, there would be alarms in the house, and he could have Googled more ways to stop the robbers, not that he needed Google.
We so want to see a “Home Alone” remake in modern times, but we are also itching for another sequel with McCallister all grown up.
