Macaulay Culkin is ‘Home Alone’ again in hilarious new Google ad

To tie in with the video above, Google is now offering "Home Alone"-themed ways for you to interact with your Google Assistant-powered hardware, such as your smartphone or your Google Home smart speaker".

A new Google Home commercial has Macaulay Culkin Home Alone Again, reprising his role in the holiday classic he is best known for. The actor also re-creates scenes from the original Home Alone film, includes the ones in which his character jumps on a bed, fixes his hair and eats dinner all by his lonesome.

From adding aftershave to his shopping list to reminding Kevin about cleaning the sheets later, to also turn down the temperature by two degrees, Google Assistant does it at all. But all of the decorations and room arrangements completely mirror the movie, only now, the plot centers around the ways Google Assistant can help a person living solo - which feels infinitely less fun than Home Alone itself. Yep, that'd be Joe Pesci, who played Henry Lyme, one of the Wet Bandits.

The minute-long ad is only one way Google is trying to honor the "Home Alone" franchise.

If you're a '90s kid, you are probably familiar with this famous line, "Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal And A Happy New Year!" The 38-year-old actor seemed good-natured about the shoot, speaking to the camera about the nostalgic process. And there appears to be some strategy behind Google's movie choice - search interest in "Home Alone" increased 1,900 percent last Christmas, CNET reports.

"It's me Snakes. I got the stuff", which will prompt a recreation of more dialogue from Angels with Filthy Souls.

Of course the conclusion is that Google "commence [s] Operation Kevin", to scare off the wannabe robbers, by creating the illusion that a collection of people are home - I guess they'd be willing to take on Culkin on his own?

The pair set about reviewing the awful Home Alone cash-in video games, before doing a booby trap montage.
