She did! Here's a video of Kelsey in the Christmas tree costume:
Look at it. It’s glorious.
It’s even better than we imagined it would be. It’s one thing to see a picture taken within someone’s own home (or dorm room or whatever), but something else entirely to see a Christmas-tree-shaped human walking around campus.
She became something of a local celebrity:
Move over, Santa! People want their pictures taken with Christmas-tree-costume-clad people now.
Santa is old news. All we care about now is Christmas tree costumes.
Mostly, people are loving Kelsey's attitude through this whole thing.
She made a promise and she stuck to it.
It’s quite honorable, really.
But that hasn't stopped her from regretting her decisions.
Someday, the tale of Kelsey the Christmas Tree Costume Girl will be a holiday tale told all ’round the world. There’s probably a lesson in it somewhere, right?
She was especiallyregretful on Day 2 of the social experiment when it started raining:
On the one hand, there are few things sadder than someone being stuck in a soggy costume as a result of their own social media hubris.
On the other hand, we’re still laughing.
