If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Hmm, I wonder Kevin McCallister from Home Alone would have been like as an adult?”, a new web series, which stars Macaulay Culkin himself, may give you an idea. Spoiler alert: he’s kind of deranged. In the debut episode of :DRYVRS, Culkin plays the driver of a rideshare company similar to Über, with a whole lot of unresolved baggage from the time he was eight years old and his entire family went on vacation without him.
Series creator Jack Dishel calls for a ride and ends up having to listen to Culkin vent about his childhood past, which sounds exactly like the plot to the 1990 classic flick. “I had to fend off my house from two psychopath home invaders,” he says in the clip, via EW. “I was just a kid. I mean, I still have nightmares about this bald, weirdo dude chasing me around talking like Yosemite Sam.”
When the two come in contact with a carjacker, Culkin still has all his previous booby-trap tricks up his sleeve and ends up capturing him. He then ties him up in a garage and recites a disturbing version of the monologue he performed in the film’s famous mirror scene. It’s funny, but gets bloody.
Future episodes of :DRYVRS are set to be released in 2016 and will feature more famous cameos, such as Rosanna Arquette and Steven Weber.
