Every year since then he staged a holiday themed photograph. Originally inspired by his mother’s joke, the subject matter has since matured with him. In recent years he have steered their content away from the bottle and have focused on absurdity and insidiousness. The online community has embraced the yearly tableaus, spreading them virally for a combined total of over seven million views.
