If you’ve seen the original National Lampoon’s Vacation with the Griswolds, you’re most likely familiar with the scenes where Chevy Chase’s character meets Christie Brinkley.
Clark W. Griswold would be cruising comfortable in their Wagon Queen Family Truckster while the Mrs., Rusty and Audrey would be either sleeping or preoccupied with something else. Then, in the rear-view, a bright-red Ferrari driven by a mysterious, nameless, and sexy blonde. Of course, you’d also have to cue the signature tracks, “I’m So Excited” or “Little Boy Sweet” by The Pointer Sisters.
And given that a new Vacation movie is on its way out where the trip is replicated by a grown, family man of a Rusty Griswold, Infiniti decided to replicate this scene to showcase their QX60 crossover, which is a helluva lot nicer than the Wagon Queen Family Truckster. Whether it’s better than the Family Truckster has yet to be determined.
There’s also a little cameo surprise in between–have a look at the spot to see what we mean and enjoy this little 30 second break from your morning grind for a little bit of nostalgia.
