A California teenager got hopelessly stuck in his family’s chimney for more than 90 minutes. But, unlike Santa, he wasn’t trying to leave presents under the tree.

Instead, 18-year-old Jorge Herrera was out past curfew and was trying to sneak back into his house without alerting his parents.

But Herrera’s attempt to avoid punishment didn’t go so well, as he got stuck in the chimney and needed firefighters to pull him out. Lesson learned: Leave chimney climbing to Old Saint Nick.

Watch a take of a ho ho ho-pless teen Santa below.
