Are you in search of a fresh Christmas tree but for some reason consider axes to be girly and ineffective when it comes to chopping it down? If these extremely specific circumstances apply to you, then fear not: you can absolutely blast your holiday decor free from the chains of Mother Earth.

In a glorious bit of holiday cheer, our friends at Guns.com recently reimagined a lovely vignette of father and daughter fetching the family Christmas tree with a bit of 12-gauge spice: namely, the surprise inclusion of a Mossberg 500 shotgun and a single blast of Winchester's 3-inch 1 1/8 ounce steel.

For a 30-second bit, the Guns.com video is an unexpected delight amid the commercial frenzy that is the holiday shopping season. We even cut a GIF of the pinnacle moment for your repeat viewing please:

For those of you who would prefer to combine the awesome power of shotgun and the choppiness of an axe together for this holiday task, we have two words for you: shotgun axe.

God bless us, every one.
