Son Pranks Religious Mum With Ewan McGregor 'Jesus Picture'

Son Pranks Religious Mum With Ewan McGregor 'Jesus Picture'

Ever got something so wrong you're just not sure how to make it right? Well, that's exactly what one guy did when he jokingly gifted his parents a picture of Ewan McGregor for Christmas.

The prankster, named Ryan, presented the picture of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' from the Star Wars film Attack of the Clones - but his religious mum thought she'd unwrapped a painting of Jesus and hung it up on the wall.

He spoke about the situation on Reddit and commented: "I've made a huge mistake. Mom loves her Jesus Christmas present and I'm not sure how to get out of this thing alive when she figures it all out."

Ryan posted a video of his mum unwrapping the gift on Youtube - which has now been taken down - and told Insider that pictures of the Son of God hanging in his childhood home are not uncommon so thought it would be a funny prank to play on his parents.

He then said he was inspired to use the picture of the Scottish actor when he saw another Reddit user compare McGregor as Obi-Wan in Star Wars Episode II to Jesus.

Ryan admitted to Insider: "I kind of chased that thought to, how funny would it be if my parents didn't recognise who it was and actually hung it up on the wall. I have always tried to get away with things or pull some pranks on my family members and this seemed perfect."

As much as he enjoyed the prank Ryan knows he's on borrowed time as his mum is already starting to cotton on to the fact there's 'something off' with her son's gift.

He said: "This morning they walked past it and my mother said something along the lines of 'there is something off about that Jesus picture. I'm not totally sure I like it'. Which went hand in hand with what she looked like as she opened it.

"She knew something was off but wasn't sure what. My dad kind of hung around saying it looked really familiar to him. He said 'it almost looks like Obi-wan Kenobi' but figured it was just coincidence."

Insider reports that now that the post has blown up online, Ryan has filled his dad in on the prank and he can't stop laughing at the portrait.

In Ryan's parents' defence, McGregor did actually play Jesus in the 2016 film Last Days in the Desert.

Talk about a prank gone wrong.
