Macaulay Culkin returns as Kevin McCallister from Home Alone in the new holiday-themed commercial: Home Alone Again with the Google Assistant.

As if a glitter bomb package thief video, inspired by Kevin McCallister, wasn’t enough, now Kevin-himself (actor Macaulay Culkin) returns for a Christmas themed ad: Home Alone Again with the Google Assistant.

The brilliant Google commercial shows an adult version of Kevin McCallister going through many of the same famous events from the first Home Alone movie (1990). (Although next year, we wouldn’t mind a sequel version of this ad, say in New York… hint, hint!)

When adult Kevin learns he’s out of aftershave, he asks Google Assistant to add it to his shopping list. When Kevin finishes jumping on the bed, he asks Google Assistant to remind him to wash the sheets. And when the Wet Bandits arrive at the house, he asks Google Assistant to help him kick off the fake-party scene! It’s a perfect, nostalgic holiday advertisement for Google Assistant!
