“#heygoogle Have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult?” the actor, 38, tweeted on Wednesday, December 19. “Me neither. But just in case you’re curious you should totally watch this #ad.”
In the minute-long compilation, Culkin has the house to himself but is better able to enjoy it with the help of Google Assistant. In fact, “Operation Kevin” takes care of itself with a simple voice command, which turns the lights on, locks the door and sets mannequins roaming around the room, and the thieves Kevin thwarted in the 1990 movie decide not to even stop by the home.
The My Girl star opened up in November about watching the beloved film with girlfriend Brenda Song. “It’s, like, you got a new girlfriend and you’re flipping through the channels and she’s like, ‘Eh, you wanna watch it?’” he revealed during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “I’m like, ‘You wanna watch Home Alone with Macaulay Culkin, don’t you?’ And she’s like, ‘Yes!’”
He continued: “I have indulged that. Most of the time I’m just muttering my lines under my breath, like, ‘Keep the change, you filthy animal.’ Whatever gets her motor running, I guess.”
The former child star also mentioned a highlight from filming 1992’s Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. “I had to work at 4 a.m. as a 10-year-old. It was great,” he said of filming outside Rockefeller Center with the location’s iconic Christmas tree. “It was my favorite day as a child.”
