In an instance of Christmas decorations gone wrong, a "man" hanging off a roof in Austin, Texas, prompted a panicked 911 call from a concerned passerby.
According to a report, the Heerlein family in Austin wanted to win their neighborhood lights contest so they decorated with a memorable and infamous scene straight out of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. Part of the recreation included a hapless Clark Griswold hanging from the roof while putting up the twinkling lights display.
To create the look, the family purchased a dummy and donned it with a Clark Griswold mask, and they even recreated the Griswold clothing using finds from Goodwill. Add a rigged up tipping over latter, and behold the scene was set - for panic that is.
