HomeAway Super Bowl Commercial Details Unveiled

The HomeAway Super Bowl ad will air during the third quarter of Super Bowl XLIV on Feb. 7.
Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo star in their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the National Lampoon’s Vacation movie in the ad, which is a mock movie trailer giving a sneak peek of a short film based on the original movie.

In the Hotel Hell Vacation film, Clark surprises Ellen with a romantic second honeymoon before meeting up with their son Rusty and his family for an extended vacation. In classic Griswold family tradition, they run into plenty of travel mishaps along the way.

The HomeAway commercial, directed by award-winning director Bryan Buckley, is supposed to drive consumers to HomeAway.com to view a 15-minute movie.


The 15 minute movie is a nice idea, but maybe to long for the Super Bowl evening. HomeAway needs to have the buzz going until the next day to keep consumers coming back to watch.

Beginning in late spring, HomeAway plans to take its exact replica of the Griswold Family Truckster on the road to visit popular vacation destinations to further spread the word about the benefits and value of vacation rentals.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
