Back To Basics: Kevin McCallister Is ‘Home Alone’ Again In Google’s Holiday Ad And Everyone Is Nostalgic

Almost twenty-eight years ago, we met the iconic and joyful, Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone,” the highest-grossing Christmas movie of all time.

Now, Macaulay Culkin has reprised his uforgettable role, Kevin in Google’s new holiday film, “Home Alone Again with the Google Assistant”. He also announced the partership via Twitter.

 

The video features a modern-day Kevin, who shows us what happens when he finds that he has the house to himself, and the Google Assistant on his side. He adds aftershave to his shopping list, sets an “Operation Kevin” custom routine to lock his door, turn on the lights and make sure the Wet Bandits don’t stand a chance. Created out of Arts & Letters, the ad is directed by Mike Warzin via Arts & Sciences.

Starting today and for a limited time, Google Assistant can take users back to some of the most iconic moments from the film with quotes from your favorite scenes. To join in on the nostalgia, simply say “Hey Google…” then the iconic lines continue:

How much do I owe you? Keep the change, you filthy animal…
Did I forget something? KEVINNNNNNNNNN!
It’s me Snakes. I got the stuff. Angels with Filthy Souls.
The Wet Bandits are here…
I’m the man of the house…

To continue the fun,let’s take a look at the then-and-now versions of the unforgettable scenes and their replications,

Macaulay Culkin, while shooting “Home Alone Again with the Google Assistant” brought him back to his original days on set. He commented,

They did a very good job on the set decoration, the props, and all the shots were spot on,” he says. “I am thinking and hoping that people will really dig it.

As the tech giant revisits and inserts itself into the classic holiday tale, we bet this spot is a bold one between this year’s holiday ads.
