Just days after reviewing Home Alone video games on comedy retrogaming web series Angry Video Game Nerd, Macaulay Culkin is in the spotlight once again in a new ad for Google.

The Home Alone star reenacts a few of his famous scenes from the iconic 1990 Christmas comedy film with a twist, now portrayed as a grown up Kevin McCallister.

Emphasizing how technology has evolved since the ’90s, particularly promoting Google Home and Google Assistant, Macaulay Culkin is seen asking the voice assistant with a variety commands and reminders such as to get him aftershave, clean his bed sheets after jumping on them, scare away a delivery guy with the movie’s classic fictional film Angels With Filthy Souls, and even executing “Operation Kevin,” which showcases a cutout of NBA superstar Kevin Durant riding atop a robot vacuum to scare away burglars — another key sequence inspired from the holiday classic.

Enjoy the ad above, and for more, take a closer look at the outtakes, bloopers, and behind-the-scenes footage below, in which Macaulay Culkin describes what it was like returning to the role after all these years.

Up next, watch Macaulay Culkin respond to insane ‘Home Alone’ conspiracy theories.
