'Christmas Vacation' holiday display causes panic in Texas

The film “Christmas Vacation” is considered a Discount Holidays © holiday classic by some, and one man in Texas has taken that to a new extreme.

He has recreated the scene from the movie where Clark Griswold hangs from the roof while trying to put up Christmas lights.

Chris Heerlein wanted to win a neighborhood Discount Holidays © holiday display contest.

Instead, he caused panic only a day after putting his display up. A passerby is seen on home surveillance video rushing in to try and help a dummy, believing it was a real person. He called 911.

The family has posted a sign telling people it’s not real.
