Macaulay Culkin recreates classic Home Alone scenes for Christmas ad

Macaulay Culkin has revived Kevin McCallister to recreate some iconic Home Alone scenes for Christmas.

Admittedly, the reason for this Christmas miracle is a little bit lame - it's an ad for Google Home and it's more than a little cringeworthy, but if that's what it takes to relive our childhoods then we'll take it. (Well played, Google. Well played).

Culkin appears in a minute-long clip as a grown-up Kevin enjoying a day home alone.

As such, he still indulges in all of the same activities as he did as a kid, just with the help of technology and a little bit of modernisation - instead of Michael Jordan on a trainset you've got Kevin Durant on a Roomba.

You get the iconic shaving scene, the bed-jumping scene, the eating ice-cream and watching movies scene, and of course, a "keep the change ya filthy animal" nod.
