Many, many movie fans will be settling down for their annual festive viewing of Home Alone this Christmas.
Now they have an extra early present in the form of Macaulay Culkin reprising the role of Kevin McCallister.
The catch? It’s not a feature-length sequel but an advert plugging a gargantuan internet search company. (Yes, Google.)
But fans have relished seeing an adult Kevin recreate some of the 1990 film’s most famous scenes.
Perhaps inevitably, he now fights off the intruders with the help of the aforementioned search giant.
