This past holiday season, Google used a serious 90-year-old nostalgia for children to deliver a Google Assistant ad that had none but Macaulay Culkin as Alone Alone Kevin McAllister. While we saw Kevin, who all grew up and spent the night, both Sticky bandits were not. Now the fresh video with Joe Pesci reminds us why Google left him.

Joe Google's home ad lacks ad charm and panaché that lasted before the holidays and has a little more on Pesci, which looks original and mumbling.

If you really want to find out what Google Assistant is capable of, it's worth copying the original holiday ad to see if Macaulay Culkin makes sure the door is locked so that no Google Stick smart home tool can break.
