In one scene, Kevin asks what is on his calendar. “You have one event,” the tablet responds, “called ‘house to yourself’.”

The ad was launched via Google and Culkin’s Twitter account, with the actor writing: “Have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult? Me neither. But just in case you’re curious you should totally watch this.”

Christmas is saved!
