Are Commercials Better Than Sitcoms? Chevy Chase Takes Part in ‘Christmas Vacation’ Reunion for Old Navy Ad
Posted on Tuesday, November 27th, 2012 by Russ Fischer
Chevy Chase has called sitcoms “probably the lowest form of television,” and before leaving the show, moaned that doing Community was “a big mistake.” But making a few bucks by mugging in a few shots for an Old Navy ad is OK, based on the evidence below. So this is how reunions happen now for the casts of well-liked comedies — a fat check from a retail outlet, rather than, say, an appearance on a comedy show.
Therefore, after the break, Chevy reenacts a bit of Christmas Vacation and lights up the retailer’s ad, while Beverly D’Angelo and Juliette Lewis look on in astonishment. We know that Randy Quaid is hiding in Canada right now, but did Johnny Galecki not want to ruin his Big Bang Theory cred by appearing in this one?
