Joshua Brassow is a 25-year-old student at Saginaw Valley State University and came up with a great idea to troll his rather large family.

He hired his own fake family to pose with him in a Christmas card.

“I have six brothers and sisters. My mom has six brothers and sisters and my dad has five sisters,” Brassow said. “My family is all pretty socially conservative and everyone gets married and it’s set in stone.”

“I figured so many people hadn’t seen me in so long they’d think, ‘Man, I haven’t seen him in a few years and what did he get himself into. He got this woman twice his age pregnant and now has to step up and be a dad to these kids almost his age,’” Brassow said.
