Kevin Tibbles puts his hooves on for the holidays
This year, NBC News’ Kevin Tibbles was immortalized by one Minnesota family — as a reindeer in their hilarious annual Christmas card.
“Where in the world is Matt Lauer while I’m doing this?” Kevin quipped while in his costume.
Mom Sue Johnson has been getting her family dressed up in wacky costumes — from toy soldiers and snowmen to Christmas lights — for more than 20 years. How does she come up with the ideas?
“Sometimes they come to me in dreams,” she told Kevin. “Or, my husband refers to them as nightmares.”
Whether the experience was a dream or a nightmare for Kevin, we don’t know. But he couldn’t escape some good-natured ribbing from the anchors.
For two decades, one Minnesota family has been taking their annual Christmas cards to extremes, posing as elves, toy soldiers, gingerbread men and more. NBC's Kevin Tibbles reports.
“Kevin just may have just crossed the line when it came to reporter involvement,” Ann said, while Carl Quintanilla added, “Tibbles never looked better.”
