Crazy Christmas: Prankster's tree seems to burst through roof

A Seattle man used some creativity and construction skill to make it look like the top of his Christmas tree broke through the roof of his house. It’s actually the tree cut into two parts, but he put the top part on the roof with some extra roofing material around it to create the illusion.

SEATTLE -- Believe it or not, this picture was not Photoshopped. But it’s not quite as real as it looks, either.

A Seattle man used some creativity and construction skill to make it look like the top of his Christmas tree broke through the roof of his house.

It’s actually the tree cut into two parts, but he put the top part on the roof with some extra roofing material around it to create the illusion.

“I built the prop using a quarter sheet of plywood, sheathing and spare roofing tile,” Kruger said. “I then bought a 14-foot tree and cut the top 6 feet off and mounted it to the prop."

"The first attempt was blown off the roof, so I bolted it down with the help of my buddy, Scott Douglas.”

Well played, gentlemen.
