Kiefer Sutherland Diving Into A Christmas Tree On Loop Is Oddly Zen-Like

Actor/greatest public drunk ever Kiefer Sutherland turns 50 today (December 21), and while there’s a multitude of ways to celebrate his birthday, only one feels appropriate this time of year. 

A little over a decade ago, Sutherland went viral for diving into a Christmas tree in the lobby of a London hotel.  At the time, he was filming a documentary called I Trust You to Kill Me, which chronicled the European tour of the band Rocco DeLuca and the Burden.  The band was signed to Sutherland’s indie record label, Ironworks, and during that tour, Sutherland served as the band’s tour manager.

It should come as no surprise that Sutherland was drunk when he dove into the Christmas tree, but we are endlessly thankful for the moment.  Seriously, just watch the GIF below and feel a sense of calm come over you…and the weird desire to also dive into a Christmas tree.
