What’s the best thing about the holidays? Re-watching classic films like “Home Alone,” duh!
“Home Alone” is in my top 3 favorite holiday movies because, even as an adult, I find it relatable and heartwarming. What person doesn’t happily embrace an empty house? Who isn’t scared of at least one of their neighbors? What person doesn’t love their family at the end of the day?
This holiday season, though, an all grown up Macaulay Culkin paired with Google for a 60 second ad that does not disappoint!
Like the movie, Kevin once again finds himself “home alone” (well… kind of), and gets into his own shenanigans with the help of modern technology: Google! The ad also features scenes from the iconic movie we all love.
And, of course, social media is blowing up with raving reviews over what just might be the best Christmas ad in over a decade.
This is the best holiday commercial I’ve seen all month (or in years!) 👏Way to go @Google! #HomeAloneAgain https://t.co/ttJE4X6two
