Video of Chevy Chase on a Cruise Ship Waterslide Is the Content We're Here For

Everyone thinks we need a National Lampoon's Cruise Vacation movie.

Between Chevy Chase's starring roles in moves like Vegas Vacation, Christmas Vacation, and European Vacation, the comedian has become famous for portraying character Clark Griswold as he navigates new travel scenarios. But one thing we never got to see the Griswold family do was go on a cruise — well, until now. Sort of! 

On TikTok, Chase shared a video of himself going down a water slide on a cruise ship, and fans are loving it. It's giving us a glimpse of what the Vacation franchise could have been if this type of vacation had been chronicled in a movie! 

It looks like he's having a blast — but honestly, who isn't when they're on a water slide? And at 79 years old, we're loving that he's still willing to do this kind of thing, made all the sweeter by the fact that his wife, Jayni, is by his side. According to the hashtags he used on the post, this is from the TCM Classic Cruise, which took place this month on the Disney Dream and featured live Q&As with stars like Chase along with movie screenings. 

So many fans who caught the video are loving it. and happy to point out that it's giving them all the Vacation movie vibes.

"Seeing Chevy Chase on vacation just seems correct," one person wrote, while another added, "OMG the movie we never knew we needed. National Lampoon's Cruise Ship Vacation!"

One fan joked, "Went down one like that with my sister and we shot down that slide like Clark Griswold on a saucer sled with non-nutritive cereal varnish on it." 

From this footage, it looks like Chase had a great time, and there's no doubt that the fans on board were excited to see him at the event, too.
