Macaulay Culkin reprised his role as Kevin McCallister in the Christmas classic “Home Alone” in an ad in the Google Assistant.

In the ad released Wednesday, 38-year-old Culkin back in character as the witty 8 years old. With the help of the Google Assistant, the actor helped to modernize many of the scenes from the movie from 1990.

“Hey Google, what’s on my agenda today?” McCallister asked, to which the virtual assistant replied: “You have an event called, ‘the House for yourself.'”

Recreating iconic scenes from the movie, McCallister shaved his face, jumped on the bed, and decorated the christmas tree already, while the ask the assistant to set reminders for him. When McCallister gets the pizza delivered, the Google Assistant helps him to the employee: “Keep the change, you filthy animal.”

Macaulay Culkin praised the people behind the Google-commercial, and said that she was “a very good job on the sets and the props and all the photos were really spot on.”

McCallister later asked Google to begin with the Operation “Kevin,” in which the assistant is executed with a different function.

Culkin, in a behind-the-scenes version of the commercial, it turned out that “It was interesting to go back and do all these things. They do a good job on the sets and the props and all the photos were really spot on.”

In an interview on “The Ellen Show” earlier this year, Culkin told host Ellen DeGeneres that he does not often see the two “Home Alone” movies in which he played, and called them “background radiation in the time of Christmas.”

He added that he turns the fans down when they ask him to do, the “face thing” — a nudge to the scene in which the character splashed aftershave on his face and quipped, “been there, done that already, guys. I am just 37 now, OK mom?”
