We’re all guilty of making promises we don’t intend to keep from time to time. Luckily, they’re usually not life-or-death situations, and we don’t make them on the internet for all the world to see.
The same can’t be said for 20-year-old college student Kelsey Hall, who agreed to wear a Christmas tree costume to class for the rest of the semester.
The University of Alabama student rightfully thought it would be funny to tweet a picture of her wearing the festive outfit with a caption saying she’d agree to wear it to class for the remainder of 2017 if enough people engaged with it online.
Needless to say, the tweet got more than enough attention for Kelsey to follow through on her promise.
It isn’t the first time that someone has overpromised on Twitter, but it might be the first time anyone has worn a foam costume to class more than once.
This is the initial tweet that got Kelsey into trouble. She wrote, “1,000 retweets and I’ll wear this to all my classes for the rest of the semester.”
You’ll notice that Kelsey didn’t just get 1,000 retweets — but also about 17,000 on top of that.
All of the attention meant that Kelsey was going to have to deliver on her promise.
By the looks of it, it’s not the first time she’s unwillingly worn Christmas gear.
As you can imagine, Kelsey wasn’t exactly thrilled about what she was about to do.
Things weren’t helped when Twitter got involved and decided to publicize Kelsey’s tweet.
The move exposed her and her promise to thousands of people who may have never seen it otherwise.
Like the true example she is, Kelsey can be seen here walking on the University of Alabama campus, sporting her Christmas tree costume.
She describes the event as “Proof that I follow through.”
Plenty of Kelsey’s peers were excited that she agreed to spread the Christmas spirit. The same can’t exactly be said for Kelsey.
On day two, Kelsey and her outfit encountered some rain. Hopefully the washing instructions on the costume are still clearly labeled.
The bottom line is that everyone is enjoying Kelsey’s promise (besides Kelsey).
On the bright side, things could be worse. She could have agreed to also wear the present-box shoes along with the rest of the tree.
We’ll just have to wait and see when the next time Kelsey wears civilian clothes will be. However, we wish her luck for the rest of the semester and a Merry Christmas!
