Macaulay Culkin: “I’m getting too old for this shit”

The former child star is the face of Happy Socks new Holiday campaign.


Known as Kevin in the "Home Alone" films — the Swedish lifestyle brand has put the actor in a series of silly ‘Naughty or Nice’ poses, including a few with a ribbon-wrapped iguana.

“Both Happy Socks and I have really good taste in spokesman," Culkin said. "But yeah, Christmas is my time of year. I get recognized 10 times more between the months of November and January. I have no idea why.”

The ad begins with a close-up of the big lizard and Culkin’s hands, which feature painted nails and a few rings. It then pans out to show him sitting on a chair, wearing an ugly sweater, tweed pants, tassel loafers and a pair of red snowman socks. He poses, makes faces and finally speaks, saying “Every day is a holiday, except for, you know, the holidays.”

He then poses with a Jello mold of Happy Socks, then states “I’m getting too old for this shit,” before the spot states “Happy Holidays”.

The ‘Naughty or Nice’ holiday gift collection from the company offers a selection of traditional holiday presents, and includes a variety of cheerful printed pairs, gift boxes and customized wrapping options.
