New Ford Mustang Mach-E Commercial Sees Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo Reprise “Christmas Vacation” Roles
“It’s a beaut Clark!” You couldn’t be more surprised by this all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E advertisement even if you woke up tomorrow with your head sewn to the carpet; but this television spot is the real deal!
Believe it or not, the legendary Chevy Chase (now 77 years old) and Beverly D’Angelo (aged 69) have reprised their famous roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the 1989 holiday classic National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for a recent Mach-E ad.
The commercial recreates one of the most iconic scenes from the beloved film, the one where Clark Griswold, hell-bent on creating a magical Christmas experience for his entire family, meticulously decorates his home with “25,000 twinkle lights” only for the reveal to fall flat (at first).
This time though, the bright and shiny 2021 Mustang Mach-E steals the spotlight, and there’s not even any need to switch to nuclear auxiliary power!
“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,” said 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.”
The hilarious and festive spot, which will air during the December 22nd Saturday Night Live Christmas Special, puts a clever, tongue-in-cheek spin on the ever-rotating cast who’ve had the pleasure of playing the Griswold children over the years.
“My favorite sidekick role is playing Ellen Griswold to Chevy's Clark, my one and only Sparky,” D’Angelo said. “But this year, the brightest spark is the Mustang Mach-E in the driveway!” she quipped.
“Please don't tell him I said that. I'm already in trouble for bringing a different set of kids every time we go on a vacation.”
