From the press release:
Oh yah, you read right – happy holidays ya filthy animal! Google brings back the nostalgia with new ads featuring Macaulay Culkin, reprising his role as Kevin McCallister, in a comedic “remake” of the classic film.
To celebrate one of the most popular holiday movies of all time, we catch up with a now 38-year-old McAllister and revisit iconic scenes with a tech twist. See what happens when a wiser and older Kevin enlists help from Google Assistant-enabled devices like Home Hub or Pixel phone.
Every year, Home Alone searches trend on Google during the holidays, spiking 1900% in a month last year. For a limited time, fans can also try it out themselves to discover interactive easter eggs by asking specific questions – Google Assistant will respond with lines from the original film.
Starting today and for a limited time, your Assistant can take you back to some of the most memorable moments from the film with quotes from your favorite scenes. To get in on the fun, say “Hey Google”¦”
“Did I forget something?” to hear the iconic “KEVINNNNN!” scream.
“How much do I owe you?” or “It’s me Snakes. I got the stuff,” to recreate a back-and-forth dialogue from the movie Kevin watches, “Angels with Filthy Souls.”
“The Wet Bandits are here” to hear what Kevin would do in his most heroic moment.
“I’m the man of the house” and relive the famous scene when Kevin puts aftershave on his face.
This of course isn’t the first time Culkin has revisited Home Alone. He played McCallister a few years back in a not so family friendly web series episode. He’s even jumped into the wrestling ring and used some of his Home Alone tricks.
Even Kevin McCallister needs a little help. Add aftershave to your shopping list, set reminders, and fend off bandits, hands-free: https://assistant.google.com
