When it comes to over-the-top outdoor light displays, Halloween is still a ways behind Christmas. But if this Halloween video — featuring 8,500 lights set to the tune of "What Does the Fox Say?" — is any indication, the scary is making a run on the merry.
The clip, uploaded by EdwardsLandingLights and featuring the runaway hit tune from Ylvis, has already racked up over 167,000 views on YouTube. And while part of that is likely due to the song's immense popularity, one mustn't discount the work that went into creating the accompanying light display.
Talking jack-o'-lanterns, trees that point toward the heavens, and gravestones that flicker on and off in time with the beat — all these features are undoubtedly cool. But what happens if, say, you're a neighbor and you've grown a wee bit weary of hearing what the fox says?
No problem. Turns out, according to the clip's YouTube description,"viewers tune in their car's FM radio to 'hear the lights.' No music is broadcast outside." Dog goes woof, cat goes meow, neighbor goes thanks.
Another home that's combining Halloween spirit with pop music is this California house that showcases a talking skull with Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines."
And then there's this home, located in Naperville, Illinois. Note the "guests" in the front yard.
