This is going to be a problem
Driving around the other day at night, I pulled up behind a minivan. I sat there at the stoplight watching their TV set through their back window. I was able to immediately recognize the movie as National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
. It was the scene where Clark finally gets the christmas lights to work. The light turned green and I realized that I had to pass this minivan or I was going to wreck. It is too hard to drive behind someone who is showing you a tv. I am habituated to watching TV. Christmas Vacation is not a movie I need to see again. I've seen it enough that anything that was originally funny is now only a routine I go through in my head to test my memory. I shouldn't be trying to call out lines from shitty movies while I'm driving. That's just wrong. And it's unsafe at any speed. Look for that to show up on the local action news sometime.
