Cristiano Ronaldo reenacts Home Alone in Portuguese commercial

November 10, 2016

A new highlight in Cristiano’s prolific advertising career

The holiday advertising season is upon us and this year we’ve received the gift of a truly bizarre Cristiano Ronaldo spot for a Portuguese telecom company. In the commercial, Cristiano takes up the role Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone, reenacting several of the film’s most famous scenes, with his real-life mother playing the role of his mom (naturally).

This is odd for several reasons:

  1. Cristiano Ronaldo is a 31-year-old man (with a child of his own), so being left home alone should not be that unusual.
  2. The commercial has a sitcom laugh track, which the film definitely did not have.
  3. Again, Cristiano Ronaldo is a fully grown adult person.

That said, this is a truly spectacular piece of cinema and we can only hope it is just the beginning of Cristiano doing shot for shot remakes of other holiday classics like A Christmas Story, Elf, and Bad Santa.
