Daniel Stern Revives ‘Home Alone’ Character in New Parody Video
Daniel Stern, who played the thief Marv in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, revisited the character on Christmas Eve in honor of the 25th anniversary of the release of the first movie.
Stern's video serves as a response to a parody starring Macaulay Culkin. Culkin recently appeared in a comedy web series titled :DRYVRS as a grown-up Kevin McCallister. In the video, we see Kevin as a tortured, chain-smoking Uber driver who can't seem to shake off the memories of being terrorized as a kid.
In Stern's interpretation of where Marv is 25 years later, he imagines him as suffering from PTSD from his many accidents sustained from going after Kevin McCallister. Marv calls out to his partner Harry (played by Joe Pesci) and alerts him to the fact that Kevin is out and about, and still inflicting Christmas harm.
Needless to say, both videos aren't actually canon to the Home Alone story, but it's fun to see these actors parody these characters 25 years after the movie became a Christmas classic.
