It's a rare occurrence when a holiday classic can be remade and still be beloved. Can you imagine anyone besides Bruce Willis in 'Die Hard' or Chevy Chase in 'Christmas Vacation?"

Here's an exception to the rule. The people from the How It Should Have Ended YouTube Page did this video to prove it. What if the star of 'Home Alone' wasn't eight-year-old Kevin McCallister, but instead was the alien we all know and love from the 80's, E.T.? Move over, Macauley Culkin, there's a new star in town!

It's surprising how well this actually works. Watch as E.T. battles the Wet Bandits and all the while still manages to 'phone home.' This is a Christmas movie remake that we'd actually like to see happen!
