One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989).
So, if I saw a house decorated out in white lights, with a man hanging from the roof, and a ladder underneath him decorated in lights, it might make me stop, but I think I would get the brilliant refrence to Clark Griswold’s classic Christmas light hanging scenes.
Unfortunately, not everyone is so well accustomed to the movies, and this decoration got one kind-hearted Austin, Texas man into a bit of a serious situation.
As he passed by this house, he thought the Clark dummy was a real man in a bad situation. So he pulled up to the house, yelled to the man, tried to move the ladder closer, and ended up calling 911. Check out the fun news video below.
