While we're in the midst of the Halloween season, it's never too early to begin planning for the Christmas season. This includes the legendary holiday comedy Christmas Vacation, which has now received a new Funko Pop just in time to be placed under your Christmas tree.
The new Funko Pop is a part of the company's VHS Cover line. The figure recreates Chevy Chases Clark Griswold, dressed as Santa Claus, as he is electrocuted above a chimney. The poster/VHS cover is attached to the figure and comes in a sturdy plastic case that can be easily hanged.
This isn't the first Christmas Vacation Funko product, but it perfectly embodies the fun nostalgia feel of the film.
The 1989 cautionary family Christmas film is not only widely considered one of the funniest films ever made, but it's also one of the most authentically sincere films the holiday genre has to offer. The original Vacation introduced Clark as this obsessive perfectionist, but Christmas Vacation expands him to an absurd eleven. Clark just wants to give the best family Christmas ever, just like his father did before him.
This Christmas from hell is all things heartfelt, sweet, and relentlessly funny, with a great sense of humor and a timeless seasonal classic.
The VHS Cover Funko Pop is a Walmart exclusive. It will cost $19.88 and is now available for pre-order on their website. It's just in time for you to gather around a cozy fire to watch Christmas Vacation with the whole family. Until then, the film will be available on HBO Max for the first time this November.
