DEARBORN, Mich., Dec. 19, 2020 – You wouldn’t be more surprised about this latest Mustang Mach-E TV spot even if you woke up tomorrow with your head sewn to the carpet.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprise their “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold in an updated take on one of the 1989 holiday classic’s most iconic scenes – starring Mustang Mach-E.

“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.”

“My favorite side kick 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! 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.”

Catch the new short featuring Mustang Mach-E on the SNL Christmas Special Dec. 22.

"I used to have a Mustang, back when cars made sounds" :LOL: As far as ads go this is pretty good.

Is this ad indirectly telling young people that it's designed for older generation?

Yes, I too have been thinking about it. In the ad, did Mach-E power the house? Is that something the Ford connected charge station can accomplish?

She flips the wall switch which turns on his lighting power strips.

Plugging in the car to charge is a separate and unrelated thing. It's not powering the house.

I watched part of the movie with the lights, and it had a scene where the grid was overloaded and needed nuclear power to be turned on. I am pretty sure now that the ad was showing how MME was adding power to the grid. An easter egg?
