Donald Trump has made dozens of cameos in film and TV shows, as well as starring in his own reality shows. He has also featured in a surprising array of adverts and it was even reported when he ran for presidency that he appeared in a non-sexual element of a soft-core pornographic film in 1999 called ‘Playboy Video Centerfold 2000’.
But there is one film with which most people associate Donald Trump. And it is not ‘Video Centrefold’.
Chances are this Easter period you will have seen ‘Home Alone’ at some point. And chances are someone in your family will have pointed at the TV screen and said ‘Isn’t that…?’ at the point of the scene where Kevin tries to navigate the hotel.
