School’s living Christmas tree prank goes viral

The Telegraph is reporting that Kilgore High School in Texas has become an internet hit after a video of a ‘live Christmas tree’ scaring teachers and students was picked up by broadcasters…

…Teacher Michelle Gilgan explained the prank was the idea of junior student Rowdy Caycey who asked if he could dress up as a Christmas tree and scare students and teachers on camera.

Ms Gilgan added: “He was amazing at it. We had set the tree up in my classroom about three days ahead of time so people were used to seeing it. It was just sitting on a tripod and a dolly in my classroom.”

The video was originally intended to bring Christmas cheer to the school, but has now gone viral following mentions on Fox News and Good Morning America, receiving over 120,000 views on YouTube.
