Clark Griswold Prompts 911 Call to Texas Home

A Texas family’s Christmas light display, inspired by Clark W. Griswold, prompted a 911 call and a police response.

The Heerlein family thought it would be funny to decorate the house like the one in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, complete with Chevy Chase hanging off the roof — or at least a mannequin dressed up to look like him. Unfortunately, one passerby thought the person was real and frantically tried to help the man.

As he tried to move the ladder into a better position for the mannequin, he realized he needed backup, so he called 911. An officer arrived and quickly realized that it was a dummy hanging off the roof. The family now has a sign in the front yard which reads, “Clark G is part of our Christmas display please do not call 911.”

The passerby deserves a pat on the back for rushing to the mannequin’s aid. Or at least a 12-month membership to the Jelly of the Month Club.
