Thanks to his face mask, Macaulay Culkin has won the Internet for the week
On Oct. 7, the actor posted a selfie while wearing a face mask that showed his actual hands and mouth from an iconic scene in 1990's "Home Alone." Macaulay wore it over his mouth, making fans do a double take. Macaulay's eyes even had the same expression as they did 30 years ago.
"Just staying Covid-safe by wearing the flayed skin of my younger self," Macaulay, 40, hilariously wrote. "Don't forget to wear your masks, kids."
As a nod to the film's sequel, "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York," a Lego replica of the Empire State Building stood behind Macaulay.
"Whoever thought to put the LEGO Empire State Building in the back is a genius! Lol. Hehehe," Macaulay's girlfriend, Brenda Song, commented.
Needless to say, fans loved the image. Natalie Portman commented, "So good mack."
Other fans used the comments section to quote lines from the movie or refer to him as "Kevin McCallister," his character's name.
Fans called it "genius" or "amazing" or "perfect." Many others wondered where they could get that particular face mask.
It is all of those things, and, to paraphrase one comment, it is very Meta-Caulay Culkin.
