The movie’s incredible success led to four sequels. However, only one of them, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, had the original cast in it. Macaulay Culkin, who portrayed the main character, 8-year-old Kevin McCallister, shot to stardom, though his success subsided with time.

But now he got the chance to reprise his famous role in a new ad for Google.

Home Alone: Back Again

It’s been 30 years since the release of people’s favorite Christmas film. And now the actor brought back to life the mischievous yet brilliant Kevin McCallister, portraying his character in a Home Alone-themed Google Assistant ad.

In the short commercial, adult Kevin uses Google Assistant to perform various tasks for him as he finds himself alone at home again. Google Assistant writes a shopping list, regulates the temperature in the house, and even sets up ‘Operation Kevin’ to scare off burglars.

The ad swept social media over with nostalgia, with many users happy to see good old Kevin back.

Not long ago, Culkin reappeared in the public eye and even responded to Home Alone conspiracy theories during his interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. The 38-year-old actor answered a question that has been on the mind of literally everyone who saw the film: Why Kevin didn’t call the police?


Culkin said:

He makes a master plan, he uses Micro Machines, but for real, there's landlines. There's no cell phones, but still. I think that's an enormous plot hole. I don't actually spend my days thinking about it, though.

We are so happy that Macaulay is back and so grateful that he helped us return to the sweet memories of our childhood.
