‘Christmas Vacation’ holiday display causes panic in Texas

‘Christmas Vacation’ holiday display causes panic in Texas”

The Heerlein family in Austin, Texas, chose to recreate the decoration scene in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, complete with a hanging Clark Griswold.

Chris Heerlein's family placed a dummy representing Clark Griswold dangling from the gutter of their Austin, Texas, home, with a ladder tipping beneath him. "And be like 'Save Clark!'" Heerlein's sister-in-law Leah Wheless said.

One Texas family's hilarious Christmas decorations were so convincing, they duped the neighborhood to think a dummy falling from the roof while stringing holiday lights was a real person.

The family purchased a dummy and dressed it up in a Clark Griswold mask and clothes from Goodwill to match the outfit Chevy Chase wore in the movie. "Whatever he had to do, he was going to save old Clark Griswold".

The family said they put the display up for a contest. They said several people have called 911.

"We'd love to be able to find him and reach out. Let me call 911,"' Norwood said to KVUE. Alfred told KVUE. "Then I thought, 'Oh my God, I hope he's not dead, lemme call 9-1-1'".

Clark W. Griswold never won any awards for his epic display of Christmas lights, which is a shame, because he really went all out while dealing with the stress of waiting for a Christmas bonus. The homeowners felt so bad about the incident they got in contact with the concerned passerby, a retired veteran identified only as "Alfred", and gave him a gift card as an apology.

"I was trying to get him down any way I can".
