By now, Macaulay Culkin is probably a frequent guest at your home without you even knowing it. (Not that he is physically present although he could be too if you’re pals with him. We don’t rule anything out.) His hit holiday movie franchise, Home Alone, has been replaying on your television screens for nearly the last three decades that we have long forgotten the former child actor is already 39 years old and still living off the millions he amassed in the ‘90s after prolonging his method acting post-Richie Rich. It is his unofficial role during the holidays as a PSA to lock your doors that we’re all again secretly rooting for Culkin – and maybe someone said his name thrice – which could explain why he has finally exited from his mansion’s basement so as to answer heart-burning questions like his feelings about Trump’s cameo in the Home Alone sequel. Between appearing in vanity projects like Seth Green’s Changeland and contributing to his The Onion-styled lifestyle site and podcast Bunny Ears, Culkin has been secretly busy with this other side gig: a three-piece holiday sock collab with Happy Socks. (Insert horrified look a la Home Alone poster.) It is his first fashion contribution other than making every parent put multi-coloured snow hats on kids during the cold weather season. However, these Happy Socks designs are rather straightforward in thought; a colourful remix of those ugly X’mas sweaters that you’re forced to wear every year but now fashioned for the feet. The sunglass-wearing bunny prints on the trio of socks, however, might leave you wondering if these were made for Easter instead though they are symbolic references to Bunny Ears. Each limited edition sock gift box will set you back roughly US$60 of which we are sure he negotiated some sweet royalties for this deal, just in case you decide to be wearing these for the next 30 years.
