Okay, the Christmas holiday season is over and its time to take down the tree. Unlike those picturesque times you and your family had decorating the tree while singing Christmas carols and drinking apple cider, taking it down is a boring, messy affair. Thankfully Nissan decided to inject some fun into task with the use of a GT-R.

Who would have ever though a GT-R could be handy around the house?

According to Nissan, all it takes is an overhand knot and launch mode; the rest sorts itself out. Just watch the video, go ahead, I’ll wait.

Now that you’ve seen what happens then a Christmas tree unravel itself in 2.9 seconds (the time it takes the GT-R to hit 60 mph), it’s hard to imagine undecorating a tree any other way. Then again, those special, family heirloom ornaments should probably be taken down first. That popsicle stick thing you made in kindergarten probably wouldn’t survive being flung across the county.

Though it’s showing its age, the Nissan GT-R continues to be one of the most formidable vehicles in straight-line acceleration. Thanks to its 545-horsepower, 3.8-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6, AWD, and six-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, the car simply rockets off the line. Of course, it can turn, too. That’s probably handy when dodging ornaments slung like rockets from the spinning tree.
