‘Just a tiny mistake’: Iowa woman’s video of ‘obscene’ Santa display on the roof goes viral after her husband ‘forgot’ to zip-tie Saint Nick’s hand up so it would wave
An Iowa woman’s husband is on the naughty list – and so was their Santa Claus display.
TikTok user Amber Ann Zink recently posted a video of her ‘obscene’ Santa Claus light display on the roof of their home after her husband apparently forgot to tie Saint Nick’s hand up so it would be waving.
‘My husband forgot to zip-tie Santa’s hand up to WAVE,’ Amber writes on the clip, which has gone viral with more than 5.5 million likes.
‘And now it’s obscene.’
TikTok users went to town on the gaffe, which Fink titled ‘Just a tiny mistake.’

‘Naughty list this year eh,’ user Duolingo – the language-learning app – replied.
One of Zink’s neighbors, Nicole Burdess, commented: ‘Neighbor here. This is absolutely obscene. The overspray is nearly reaching my front yard!’ (Zink confirmed that Burdess is, in fact, ‘actually’ her neighbor.)
‘He only comes once a year… leave him alone,’ user cm2036 wrote in a comment that has been ‘liked’ more than 706,000 times.
Many users commented on Zink’s song choice to accompany the clip, which was Maria Carey’s famous version of Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.
‘And you picked THAT song,’ Benji Varnum wrote.
‘The perfect song choice,’ user Gabrielle Williams said.
‘Santa Claus is coming,’ Bree simply wrote, emphasizing the latter using sparkle emojis.
Durex Canada even got in on the fun, writing: ‘Looks like the only one wrapping his package this year is me.’
A few users questioned if Zink’s husband had really ‘forgotten’ to tie Santa’s hand up to wave.
‘Who else thinks he ”forgot” on purpose,’ user KaseyJ88 said.
‘All the husbands watching this are taking notes for when they want to help decorate this year,’ Katielynn added.
Amber later posted a response video to Duolingo.
She can be heard asking her husband, ‘Did you do it on purpose?’
‘Tell the truth, did you do it on purpose,’ she asks in the TikTok clip.
Her husband, meanwhile, is seen re-jigging Santa’s hand on their light display atop the roof.
Amber asks him if he ‘actually’ did it that way in the first place, to which he responds,’yep.’
‘You told me it was a mistake… not true?’ she continues.
‘That was a lie,’ her video adds, as her husband smiles.
