In National Lampoon’s Vacation movies, Chevy Chase’s Clark Griswold and his family wreak havoc during their trips across the United States and Europe, but it seems the Griswolds might have done the most damage when they stayed home in 1989’s Christmas Vacation.
In Christmas Vacation, Clark goes overboard with holiday decorations and cheer as extended family comes to his home to celebrate Christmas. If you’ve seen the film (and I highly recommend that you do), you’ll recall that a lot – and I mean a lot — of stuff was destroyed. The folks over at CinemaSins have put together a video that highlights as well as accesses all the damage that occurs in the film, from broken windows (there’s plenty) to fires (plenty of those, too) to that whole mess with Santa and his reindeers.
Check out the video “Christmas Vacation – What’s The Damage?” here below.
I’ve seen Christmas Vacation so many times (it’s one of my favorite holiday films and I can never get enough of the Griswolds), yet while watching this video I still couldn’t contain my laughter. Such good stuff!
