Hold on to your tinsel!

A running Christmas tree has set Tokyo abuzz.

A British man based in the Japanese capital is spreading the holiday spirit by running through town dressed as a very decorated Christmas tree.

Joseph Tame, who created the tree, told CNN that "there are many areas of the city that are beautifully illuminated with Christmas decorations, but there are also areas where there are not, so I thought wouldn't it be great to take the fun and wonder of these illuminations into those areas and spread the Christmas cheer."

The video certainly combines two of the stated interests listed in Tame's Twitter bio: marathon runner and public performance artist.

Here are a few of our favorite photos of the running tree:
