A special message for you Christmas celebrators: This year, when using your helicopter to set up and decorate your tree, try not to fly close to any structures. Otherwise, your propellers might get caught and cause you to have a crash in which you die. That would ruin Christmas!

Luckily, the pilot who appears in this video shot in Auckland, New Zealand did not die when his helicopter got caught in some scaffolding and snapped in two. But we imagine that he'll always have flashbacks to this accident every time he sets up his tree—which will ruin his Christmases, forevermore.

Holiday protip: Instead of using a helicopter to place the angel or star at the top of your tree, use a very tall ladder.
