The film "Christmas Vacation" is considered a holiday classic by some, and one man in Texas has taken that to a new extreme.
He has recreated the scene from the movie where Clark Griswold hangs from the roof while trying to put up Christmas lights.
Chris Heerlein wanted to win a neighborhood holiday display contest.
Instead, he caused panic only a day after putting his display up.
A passerby is seen on home surveillance video rushing in to try and help a dummy, believing it was a real person. He called 911.
The family has posted a sign telling people it's not real.
