Perhaps one of the only actors who looks like he hasn't aged in 20 years, Macaulay Culkin has reprised his famous role in "Home Alone" for a new Google campaign. 

The ad was published on Wednesday and follows the now much older Kevin as he organizes his day with the help of Google's household satellite assistants. 

"Google, add aftershave to my shopping list," he says now old enough to actually use a razor. Although he does stop short of reenacting his signature Munch's The Scream face from the film. 

The commercial also revisits some of "Home Alone's" iconic scenes; from the furnace that appears to have a life of its own to the silhouettes dancing in the window to thwart would-be intruders. 

The ad ends with Kevin asking Google to begin "Operation Kevin" which triggers app-based software to lock the doors, turn on the lights and ignite the fireplace. 

"Home Alone" was first released in theaters back in 1990, Culkin was about ten years old. This year he celebrated his 38th birthday. 

In 2003 Culkin starred in "Party Monster" as gay nightlife promoter Michael Alig, who was eventually charged with manslaughter for the murder of Andre "Angel" Melendez, a prominent celebrity of the New York club kid culture.  

This "Home Alone" reboot ad is a great way to finish out the year.
