Chevy Chase Touts Ford Mustang Mach-E


Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo return for their “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” Clark and Ellen Griswold roles [but, alas, without Juliette Lewis and Johnny Galecki] to tout Ford’s Mustang Mach-E.

Chase and D’Angelo recreate the memorable scene from the 1989 holiday classic film in which Clark had installed so many Christmas lights that it temporarily cut power across the entire city – but in the Ford version, Ellen uses the Mustang Mach-E to save the day.

Chase, meanwhile, comments on his involvement with the campaign, in a press release.

“It’s great to be back for another Christmas with my on-screen family and its rotating assortment of kids — and I have Ford and Mustang Mach-E to thank for paying me to do it,” explains Chase. “I suppose you’re expecting some sort of riff on electric cars, but I can say with 85% certainty that this thing probably won’t cause any blackouts in your neighborhood when you plug it in.”
