A Family’s Christmas Decorations Include Clark Griswold Hanging Onto the Gutter . . . and Someone Calls 911

If you have never seen the movie …HOW DARE YOU ! There’s a famous scene in “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” where Clark Griswold is putting up Christmas decorations, he slips on some ice on the roof, and winds up hanging from the gutter.

The Heerlein family in Austin, Texas decided to recreate that scene for their Christmas decorations this year. And you can probably see where this is going.  Fast forward a day or two … a neighbor see the dummy and calls 911!

He also tried to save the dummy and yelled for help. Fortunately, everything got smoothed over quickly once the cops got there . . . and the Heerleins even gave the guy a gift card.  Really? … I would have given the guy a “YOU’RE AN IDIOT” card.
