No one is safe from the sheer joy of the holiday season—even the man who’s made a career out of playing serious characters like Charles Xavier and Jean-Luc Picard.

On Christmas Eve, Patrick Stewart’s wife Sunny Ozell posted a video of Stewart simply titled “Sweet Hat Bro,” which shows off Stewart sporting a lit-up dancing Christmas hat.

He begins the video trying to remain as stoic and collected as he’s ever been on screen, but even someone with this much acting experience can’t help but break and laugh at the new ridiculous headgear.

And to prove Stewart was more than willing to take part in the festivities, the actor tweeted out the video on Christmas to his followers.
