Published Dec 22, 2016There are plenty of memorable scenes in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation — from Clark Griswold's wild toboggan ride to totally toasted turkeys — but none will turn your stomach quicker than a drinking, smoking, bathrobe-wearing Cousin Eddie emptying his RV's septic tank into the sewer grate outside the Griswold family's house.
It certainly stood out in the memory of a Nova Scotia man, who decided to recreate the clip IRL this week. As Buzzfeed points out, Eric Anstey has been making his way through a list of 12 Dares of Christmas to raise money for a scholarship fund in memory of his cousin that passed away from meningococcal meningitis.
The latest dare found him grabbing a hose, ditching his pants and stepping into the bathrobe and hat of Cousin Eddie. Anstey stood outside a gas station in the pouring rain in Lower Sackville, NS, wielding a hose and a (pretend) beer, telling passers-by: "Merry Christmas! Shitter was full."
The whole thing was captured in a Facebook live video, which you can see below. Beyond that, you can compare it to the source material starring Randy Quaid.
