VIDEO: Man recreates ‘Home Alone’ in hilariously creepy video
YouTube user Paul Little decided to add a twist to the popular holiday classic “Home Alone” when he sent his friends a video e-card: The twist was his face.Little edited his face onto pretty much every character on “Home Alone,” including the photo of Kevin’s big brother’s girlfriend: “Buzz, your girlfriend – woof!” Another rather “Nutty Professor” Klump-esque moment is when Kevin is looking at a photo of his whole family and every member has Little’s face.
Little created an abridged version of the film by taking iconic stills from the movie, such as Kevin’s mom realizing she left him at home, and added in video and audio of his own face. His deadpan voice, which stays the same regardless of the character, adds to the offbeat humor of the video. He also adds a bit of his own commentary when Kevin is sitting at the dining room table alone: “This is the most frustrating scene in film history. He doesn’t take one bite.”
In just over two minutes, Little manages to capture Kevin McCallister’s mischievous spirit and the bumbling banter between Harry and Marv. He closes it with a spirited message to all: “Merry Christmas ya filthy animals!” One grievance: Little is admittedly not as cute as Macaulay Culkin was in the original.
No word on if Little recorded all of the audio on a TalkBoy – maybe he’ll save that for the sequel.
