A Woman Captured Her Dad’s Very Dramatic Reaction To The Sheer Thought Of Getting A Fake Christmas Tree

“If this little glimpse into my world can keep one home from getting a fake tree, my pain will have been worth it,” Joe Napoli, the not at all melodramatic dad in the viral video, told BuzzFeed News.

This is the Napoli family from Ontario, California: From left to right is dad Joe, daughter Audrey, mom Marie, and daughter Madison. All the Napolis take Christmas pretty seriously, but especially dad. “He’s pretty overdramatic at times,” Madison, 21, told BuzzFeed News.

Madison said her parents have a good-humored relationship, so when they were discussing getting a Christmas tree over the weekend, she overheard her mom trolling her dad and suggested they get an artificial tree this year.

Madison said she and her family get a real Christmas tree every year, so she knew her mom was joking around.

Unfortunately for her dad, he did not pick up on the joke. And it was no joke to him.

“Do you know they’re bad for the environment?” Madison overheard her dad grow sincerely concerned, so she started recording “to see how the conversation played out,” she said. Little did she know just how serious his dad stood against artificial trees, and captured this now-iconic reaction.

“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.

Because, apparently for Joe, Christmas is not a spectator sport. And he could not stand idly by against all of his Christmas morals.

And, of course, the Napolis did get a real Christmas tree, per tradition. BuzzFeed News can confirm Joe is sleeping well at night.
