It’s going to leave more than a few pine needles on his carpet. But that’s a price Greig Howe is happy to pay for having one of the most stunning Christmas trees ever seen in suburbia. Thirty-five feet tall, it stretches from the floor of his living room right up through the top of his home.
It would appear that Mr. Howe pulled a Clark W. Griswald and brought in a seriously oversized Christmas tree wouldn’t it? But Greig is a little smarter than Chevy Chase’s lovable jackass character.
Greig simply made it look like his tree was this big. It’s actually pretty cool what this guy constructed. A waste of time, but cool nonetheless.
In reality Mr Howe has created a breathtaking optical illusion.
The 35-year-old designer spent two days installing the tree in his six-bedroom detached home in Bournemouth to make it look like it had smashed through the ceilings.
To do so, he cut it into three sections with a chainsaw and then enlisted the help of seven friends to put it into place, using ropes.
Nicely done buddy!
