(AMP) — The real versus artificial Christmas tree debate replays itself year after year.
The debate can tear some families apart over the holiday season. It can also turn into a really funny video.
Madison Napoli recorded her dad’s priceless reaction to her mom suggesting they get an artificial tree this year. Spoiler: He isn’t too thrilled.
“He’s pretty overdramatic at times, Madison, 21, told Buzzfeed News.
Madison told Buzzfeed News she and her family get a real Christmas tree every year, so she knew her mom was joking around.
Unfortunately for her dad, Joe, he did not pick up on the joke. And it was no joke to him.
“Do you know they’re bad for the environment?” Joe can be overheard saying to Madison’s mom, Marie.
“The whole thing is freaking plastic!” Joe shouts.
“I don’t know what’s happened to you and I know I can’t solve it, so I’m just going to let it go,” he says after heaving a huge sigh.
Joe’s reaction of total disgust was completely genuine, Madison told Buzzfeed.
“He was genuinely passionate about getting a real Christmas tree,” she said. “[My mom] knew it would get under his skin a little bit.”
Madison shared the moment on Twitter and it quickly went viral.
