Follow the Characters in the Home Alone Project on Twitter
Now this is pretty unique idea. One of my all-time favorite Christmas movies is, without a doubt, Home Alone, the 1990 Macaulay Culkin classic. I've seen it enough times to know exactly what happens when and how it all plays out, but it's still a great movie. Apparently someone else wanted to take their knowledge and love of Home Alone to the next level as they've started up the "Home Alone Project" on Twitter. They've created fake Twitter accounts for some 19 characters in the movie, from Kevin McCallister to his big brother Buzz to Old Man Marley, and are tweeting things just like if everything was actually happening in real life.
Here's a little photo for reference to give you an idea of how it's playing out (click it to see the stream):
This is such a genius idea! Special thanks to SlashFilm for discovering it. The complete stream for everyone involved in the Home Alone Project can be found right here. It's playing out like a Twitter-ized version of the script (mainly the dialogue) and it's timed to actual timing in the movie. As in, the burglars are supposed to come over and rob Kevin's house at 9PM on Christmas Eve. I'm not sure what time zone they're in, but for me that's roughly 5 hours away. And I bet you at 9PM, Kevin will start Tweeting about the burglars trying to break in and it all play out exactly like it does in the movie. It's all just for fun, but this is pretty awesome!
