Macaulay Culkin is back once again to reprised his role as the ever-resourceful Kevin in Google’s new holiday film, “Home Alone Again with the Google Assistant.” It’s been 28 years since we last saw Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone” which is still the highest-grossing Christmas movie of all time. This time, Kevin is back with a new friend.
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.
Starting from Dec 19 and for a limited time, your Assistant can take you back to some of the most iconic moments from the film “Home Alone” with quotes from your favourite scenes. To join in on the nostalgia, simply say “Hey Google…”:
- “How much do I owe you?” and you’ll be reminded to “Keep the change, you filthy animal.”
- “Did I forget something?” and the famous “KEVINNNNNNNNNN” scream will play back.
- “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 trigger Kevin defending his house.
- “I’m the man of the house” to relive the famous scene when Kevin tries aftershave.
