Just don’t tell the pizza guy to “keep the change, ya filthy animal.”
The Venn Diagram of people who re-watch Home Alone every year and people who can appreciate “a delicious cheese pizza, just for me,” is a perfect circle.
Enter the Bobblehead Hall of Fame. The Milwaukee-area company – slated to open a bobblehead museum somewhere in the city in the coming year – has devised an appropriately cheesy holiday promotion for Home Alone fans.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the iconic John Hughes film, set in Chicago, they’re teaming up with Windy City pizza powerhouse Lou Malnati’s to offer a free cheese pizza to anyone who buys a set of their Home Alone bobbleheads this month. (There aren’t any Lou Malnati’s locations in Milwaukee, but there’s one in Waukegan, and at least a dozen scattered throughout Chicagoland.)
The set includes a baby-faced Kevin McCalister, wearing his signature red sweater and self-satisfied smirk, and Marv and Harry – the would-be bandits who attempt to rob the same home over again, even after sustaining dozens of life-threatening injuries inflicted by an eight-year-old boy with an impressive cache of homemade weapons.
The Bobblehead Hall of Fame is also releasing a limited-edition bobble-tarantula, in honor of Buzz’s pet spider.
So, if you still need to finish your holiday shopping or you’re in the mood to treat yourself, consider buying the set. Then pick up a pizza and settle in for a Home Alone marathon.
