Seth Rogen Once Ruined Christmas By Pointing Out A Very Obvious Home Alone Fact

Home Alone

I hope you are having a lovely Christmas Day, celebrating with your family or friends or whatever it is you are doing. Because I’m about to straight-up ruin it for you with this revelation about the classic festive film Home Alone.

Now, some of you may be aware of this fact and will be on our dicks in the comments saying things like: “Pedestrian you idiots how did you not know this” or the more straight to the point “Shut up pedestrian”, or even the old favourite: “another excuse for ‘journalism’ from fucking Pedestrian” and wow did I just a touch a nerve in myself here, I think I did?

Anyway, if you knew about this, FINE, but I didn’t know about it and neither did cool Hollywood star Seth Rogen so that’s good enough for me. Basically, what happened is this: over Xmas Seth decided to re-watch the 1990 classic and learned a mind-blowing fact which he shared with his followers and then blew their minds with it.

You know the film-within-a-film that Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) is obsessed with in Home Alone and uses to help him take down the bad guys? Well, it’s not a real movie — a fact that Seth did not know.

While some people already knew this, others were just as fkn gobsmacked.

Some people were kinda angry:

Others, of course, HAD to be the smartest people on earth.

While others had more enterprising ideas:

Yes, yes do that please.

Since Twitter is a space for know-it-alls, a few users pointed out that yes, the film, entitled “Angels With Filthy Souls” was indeed just made for Home Alone and that its “sequel”, called “Angels With Filthier Souls” appears in Home Alone‘s actual sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

A 2015 Vanity Fair article details the making of the one minute and 20 sec “movie”, saying that the crew only had one day to shoot it, with director of photography Julio Macat telling the publication: “We went for it”. You suuure did, Julio, and it had us all (okay fine, 80% of us) fooled.

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.
