Different sounds remind different people of their childhood. For instance, the cock-a-doodle-doo of an early rising rooster may ignite nostalgia in the kid who grew up on a farm, or the dong-dong of mass bells to the church raised stripling. But there is one sound so universal and irrefutable in it’s nostalgic prowess that it remains peerless. That enchanting sound is Daniel Stern’s high-pitched shriek in everyone’s favourite christmas movie, Home Alone.
You know the scream I’m talking about. Kevin is on the stairs, holding on for dear life. Marv has him by the leg. Cue huge, hairy huntsman.
Now, 26 years later, Stern has uploaded a shirtless video to his youtube featuring himself, a red bucket, and a furry little friend—‘just like in the movie.’
And just like that, I’m eight again.
