The world is divided between those who love Christmas and those who hate it. But both sides are clear and in common a couple of things: that every year seems to come earlier and that, for those who grew up in the nineties, Macaulay Culkin is one of their references. That child of Solo at home will be indivisibly linked to Christmas nostalgia. And now, after years away from that image, he has decided to shake the broken toy trail and give himself and his character some court. For this he has launched a curious adventure: being an image and designer - temporarily, yes - of some socks, of course, Christmas.

Macaulay Culkin rose to fame through those movies, but during the last decades he has preferred to stay out of them. However, now he seems to resume the issue with pleasure and even with humor by becoming a spokesman for the Swedish sock firm Happy Socks, founded in 2008 and considered one of the main ones within a booming sector. The brand invoiced almost 65 million euros last 2018, with a 47% growth compared to the previous one, 2017.

"Happy Socks and I have very good taste to choose spokespersons," Culkin jokes in the statement released by the firm. "Yes, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. They recognize me 10 times more between the months of November and January. I don't know why." That same tone of humor and irony is the one used throughout the bell, with poses between funny and somewhat ridiculous by the actor, already practically retired from Hollywood and public life.

In addition to being an image of the bell, in which he poses with an iguana, a Christmas sweater and an alpine background, Culkin has launched to collaborate on three of the designs in the collection, where he plays with pop culture and Christmas. "The people of Happy Socks are cool, fun, and they work very well with them," Culkin said in a note released by the company. "They gave me creative freedom, and I also learned a lot about the sock industry. I wanted to do something fun, funny, appropriate for this season and with bunnies. I love bunnies," the actor ironizes.
