Madame Tussauds London has decked out their collection of alarming Windsor waxworks in Christmas sweaters, rendering the group somehow even more alarming.

People reports that the Palace actually signed off on this display, as it’s technically a promotion for the charity Save the Children and their Christmas Jumper Day fundraising campaign. Of course, that’s what an advance guard of terrifying waxy aliens plotting an invasion that starts Christmas Eve around 8pm GMT would say, now isn’t it?

“We are delighted to support Save the Children by having our royal wax figures join in with the Christmas Jumper Day campaign in a seriously stylish way,” said the attraction’s inexplicably unbothered general manager Edward Fuller. “Who knows, maybe the Queen will feel inspired to do her annual speech in a more laid-back get-up this year?” added the charity’s Helena Wiltshire. Guys—are you not seeing what I’m seeing, here?

I’m more concerned about the sweaters and how Ugly Christmas Sweaters have officially been ruined. Ugly Christmas sweater goodness has COMPLETELY lost its appeal now that you can buy “ugly sweaters” in just about any store.

No, the point was to go to a thrift store and find the ugliest thing you could that someone actually bought because they actually thought it looked good then probably died so their family donated it, and it has to smell like mothballs and have at least 3 cigarette burns on one of the sleeves.
