Maybe you’re one of the people who thinks that Chevy Chase is past being ready for prime time and don’t really care that Beverly D’Angelo was once the main squeeze of Al Pacino. If you agree that the development of a new generation of personal conveyance is more noteworthy, hooray. But the Ford Motor Company still wants to ensure that you don’t forget the rollout of its all-electric Mustang Mach-E even though most of us are likely more concerned with grabbing enough eggnog, making sure everything’s wrapped and avoiding a dangerous infection. But it’s still Christmas, which means that Saturday Night Live will have a holiday special Tuesday night on NBC, and that means the aforementioned personalities will be reprising their starring roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation for a sketch on the program that not coincidentally also stars the new E-Ford.
So the emergence of this EV is arguably more noteworthy than a brief takeoff from a 1989 comedy film. I only saw the original, so I don’t know if the Mach-E is supposed to be a stand-in for the Wagon Queen Family Truckster or not. You can catch the product-placement slot by tuning in the SNL special. And if you’re interested in re-creating the scene with your own EV, go here to place an order that Ford says it can fill by New Year’s.
