WATCH: Chevy Chase takes over the wheel at a fast food restaurant

CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – Comedy icon Chevy Chase made a surprise visit to a chicken restaurant in South Carolina while in town for a special screening of his holiday classic, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

After having a bite to eat at Raising Cane’s in Charleston, Chase decided to get down to business behind the counter.

He put on a Santa hat and started taking orders at the cashier before standing in line behind the wheel. Chase also took the time to chat with his new colleagues and joke with customers during his “shift.”

Raising Cane’s, a nationwide fast food chain, is known for its chicken fingers and special sauce.

Chase is not known for his restaurant work, but he is known for a long career in the entertainment industry. The 78-year-old comedian was a “Saturday Night Live” actor and the original host of the show’s “Weekend Update” segment. He also appeared in films, including the series “National Lampoon’s”, then returned to television for several seasons on “Community”.
