Famous ‘Home Alone’ Star Finds Co-Star in Unlikely Place
Viral| | By Jason Owen
Remember Marv, the stupid Wet Bandit from Home Alone? Well, the stupider Wet Bandit from the family-favorite film? Do you want to know what he’s been up to these days?
Well, it turns out we don’t have to wonder long because Marv Merchants (Daniel Stern) is alive and well and posting hilarious videos on YouTube. And his latest video is filled with so much nostalgia, we just had to share it.
On Monday, Stern uploaded a video of himself (shirtless, nonetheless) kneeling on his garage floor in shorts and sandals with a bucket upside-down in front of him.
“Hey guys, guess what I just got in the bucket?” asks Stern. The video is titled, “Home Alone Co-Star resurfaces after 26 years (sic).” There’s a rolled up sheet of paper beneath the bucket, which Stern clumsily folds up around the rim of the bucket before turning it over. The “co-star” Stern refers to isn’t who you might think, though.
Yep, it’s Buzz McCallister’s, Kevin’s older brother, pet tarantula that famously crawled across Marv’s face in the film. Well, it’s not the same tarantula, but still. Thanks for all the laughs, Marv. We’ll never tire of seeing them each and every Christmas.
