If Bevo is the Texas Longhorns’ official mascot, and Hook ’em is some sort of secondary mascot, what does that make Matthew McConaughey? We’re not entirely sure, but the actor and beloved Austinite has been unofficially inducted into the school’s mascot troupe after being honored with his own themed Christmas tree at the University Co-op.

The tree is decorated with burnt orange garlands and McConaughey face-ornaments, but what really ties it all together is the winking McConaughey tree topper.

The Co-op took to Twitter to clarify that it wasn’t as much a Matthew McConaughey themed tree, as it was a McConaugh-tree. Merry McConaugh-mas to all.
