You know, until today, I’d always just assumed that Clark W. Griswold had shown the American populace the pinnacle of exterior holiday lighting. I also assumed that America was content with that; resigned to the fact that there was no further summit to scale in the range of home illumination. Nothing further to shed light on, so to speak.
Well, I was wrong.
I mean, maybe I”m just dull, or ignorant, or don’t go trick-or-treating enough anymore, but I had no idea setting holiday lighting to music was the hip thing to do now, let alone animating said lighting to simulate dance moves and vocals and what not. Pretty impressive, if perhaps a tad confounding.
Either way, in light of this ritual apparently becoming more and more prevalent these days, I guess it should come as no surprise that a tune as ubiquitously popular as Korean rapper Psy’s “Gangnam Style” would pop up on the block. And maybe even the next block. And the next. Any why not, if your neighbors can do it this well? Make the jump for a few more…
This one’s a bit more understated, but still pretty good, no?
I like the retro feel of this one. Some of those lights seem like they could have been around for the original airing of the It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
Finally, it’s probably worth noting that Gangnam Style, of course, has nothing to do with Halloween. That said, for fans of something a tad more topical, perhaps this Thriller house is more up your alley.
