A man dropped the mother of all pranks this Christmas, by giving his unsuspecting parents a holy gift.

A Utah man gave his parents a portrait of Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi for Christmas, and his mother hung it on her wall thinking it was Jesus.

Ryan, who asked INSIDER to only use his first name, shared a video of the prank on YouTube. The video showed his parents unwrapping their Christmas gift to find a framed portrait of McGregor’s character from the “Star Wars” films.

Ryan told INSIDER his parents, who are active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are passive movie watchers who may have seen him watch “Star Wars” growing up but likely hadn’t seen the full films themselves.

This is both awesome and evil, but I have a feeling Jesus-Wan Kenobi will forgive Ryan, for He disappeared into the Force for our sins.

The video is below the fold…
