  If you’ve ever seen "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation", you know it’s one of the best Christmas movies ever made. Especially the scene 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 nailed Christmas decorating when they brought that scene to life on their own home.  They got a dummy, dressed him up like Chevy Chase, & set him up so he was hanging from the gutter.  A man named Alfred, who is a retried vet by the way,  was walking by a few days ago and thought the dummy was real  so he called 911. He also tried to save the dummy and yelled for help. The video below actually made me laugh so hard I cried.  Fortunately, everything got smoothed over quickly once the cops got there and the Heerleins even gave the guy a gift card.  The cops aren't making them take down the decorations,  but they did put up a sign letting people know it's fake.  —
