"It’s A Beaut, Clark!" Mustang Mach-E Lights Up in New TV Spot with Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo Reprising ‘Christmas Vacation’ Roles

 

 

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.
