A fire department located about 15 miles southwest of Minneapolis, Minnesota has gone viral on social media thanks to a spoof they did from a classic scene from the National Lampoon motion picture "Christmas Vacation."

Recently the first responders from the Savage, Minnesota Fire Department decided to have a little fun Clark W Griswold style for the holiday season.

Dakota News Now reports that the guys from the Savage Fire Department recreated the legendary scene that depicts Clark (the king of exterior illumination) attempting to light up the Griswold holiday mansion with 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights to no avail.

If you've seen the movie Christmas Vacation, you know his plan had a few hitches in the giddy-up along the way, Clark's plans always do. In the movie, his wife Ellen Griswold saves the day after she discovers the power outlet Clark has all the various cords routed to is not turned on.

Anyway, the gang from the Savage, Minnesota Fire Department reenacted the famous scene in a TikTok video that has gone viral doing over 1.4 million views since it was posted over a week ago.

According to Dakota News Now, making silly videos has become somewhat of a holiday tradition over the past four years for the Savage first responders team.

Their hope is the videos they make help to give the public a chance to see the faces of the first responders that serve them.

They also hope that their videos might help to inspire others to become first responders themselves someday.
