No, you haven’t drunk too much spiked eggnog, that really is Patrick Stewart wearing a singing, dancing Christmas hat.
As you watch the video, titled “Sweet Hat Bro,” that the X-Men actor’s wife, Sunny Ozell, posted on YouTube on Wednesday, it’s hard not to smile at the British star’s reaction to his energetic, illuminated Santa hat.
Ozell is heard in the laughing in the background as she watches her husband go through a myriad of emotions in the 37-second video that more than 13,000 people have viewed.
The former Star Trek captain, who was knighted by the Queen in 2010, clearly has a sense of humor about these things – he Tweeted a link to the video to his 1.6 million followers as he wished them a “Merry Christmas.”
Merry Christmas right back at you, Sir Patrick – and, of course, Season’s Greetings to your hat.
