That's been going around everywhere lately. Everytime someone in the office plays it on a laptop, I think it's a ringtone for a second.

And suddenly all those blinding christmas lights I see in my neighborhood that keep me up at night don't seem as bad....Love the music too.
I don't hate everyone, I'm just very, very disappointed in them.

Dude oh my gosh. This guy is so totally my hero. As cool as this would be however, there hs to be some downsides to it all. Like for one, being inside the house trying to sleep when this goes off. Does it not get terribly bright? Second, how loud would that music be playing? I can't imagine the neighbors enjoy hearing that thing going off at all hours of the morning.

Thefemnazi: Ditto. I'll go grab my bike from my dad's and we can turn it into a party.

I'd bet that he has it on a daily timer or switch. Also remember, it gets dark rather early right now... So this video could very well be at something like 7pm. I just wonder what he did for teh inside of his house.

Ahh true Data. I don't think I want to know what he did with the inside of his house. The stairs probably play fur elise or something. (Which actually I would like to see that.)

I'm glad I don't live there, cause I'd have to stop in the cold and watch the whole thing through before I could keep going, lol.

Could you just imagine... You finally, after hours, maybe days of work, get your christmas lights up. You plug them in and are proud of the job you did... then suddenly.... your neighbor turns on his for the first time, and you see that.

Then just stand there and cry.... shock and awe man.... shock and awe.

I should really have made a music video like that with my house's lights. Jesus, we have so many.

I'm pretty sure that's probably not even real. Well the lights are probably really there, but I could do that video using images and premier. All he would have to do is take a picture of the house with each different sets of lights on and synch it to the song. I think it's pretty cool anyway.

No it's real... it was on the news awhile back. This guys an electrical engineer who does light programming for huge concerts, I wouldn't put it above him to do something like this.

I would like to mention that I have no cares about how the blinky wonderfullness came to be.  It gives me happiness in the form of overstimulation, and that's all that matters.  Woot for holidays!
