Daniel Stern, who portrayed Marv – one half of the “Wet Bandits” in the first two “Home Alone” films has posted a video online in response to a recent video featuring Macaulay Culkin reprising his role as Kevin McCallister.
The video shows Stern’s character, Marv, fearfully begging his partner Harry to return.
Macaulay Culkin Featured In “Home Alone” Google Assistant Ad
Kevin McCallister had to fend off two bumbling burglars all alone on Christmas in the iconic 1990 movie “Home Alone.” If only he’d had a little help back then.
Now, 28 years later, Macaulay Culkin is reprising his role as Kevin McCallister, fending off burglars in a new ad. But this time help has arrived — in the form of his Google Assistant.
Google recreated scenes from the holiday classic in a new ad released Wednesday. Culkin, as McCallister, wakes up home alone once again and asks Google what’s on his calendar. “You have the house to yourself,” the virtual assistant replies.
He then goes through his day at home as usual, this time using Google Assistant to order more aftershave, set reminders, and speak to the pizza man at the front door – of course telling him, “Keep the change, you filthy animal.”
The ad quickly went viral as it was shared by “Home Alone” fans across social media. And there appears to be some strategy behind Google’s movie choice – search interest in “Home Alone” increased 1,900 percent last Christmas, CNET reports. The film hasn’t lost its relevancy nearly 30 years later, and Google is only helping to bring it into the 21st century.
Kevin McCallister 25 Years Later: Where Is He Now?
Everybody has seen the classic holiday film Home Alone, and if you haven’t you should really get on that.
Home alone is a movie about a boy Kevin McCalister (Maccauly Culkin) who’s family forgets him at home while on a holiday vacation and he’s left to fend for himself against home intruders.
If you’re movie lovers like us then the characters in a film probably stay with you long after the story is over. You probably often come up with therioes for said character and wonder what their life is like now in the present day as if they where an actual person.
If you’re reading this and you’re thinking to yourself “yep that’s me” then today is your lucky day because thanks to a YouTube content creator Jack Disher who has released what would seem to be the first of an online series called :DRYVERS you get to see what Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is up to these days.
In the skit Kevin obviously harbors some resentment for his parents after they forgot him all those years ago. Kevin and his ride along buddy then become victims of an attempted car break in but let’s just say Kevin has not lost his spunk. It’s a hilarious skit that will get you feeling nostalgic.
Check it out for yourselves. It’s great
