OK, well It’s December 24th, so I’m trying to gather up as much spirit as I can. In honour (yes, I live in Canada, we spell it “honour”) of this, I present to you a Christmas lights display by Troy Lykken and Keith Gettelman from south Minneapolis.
The light display is set up to respond to music (!) just linke a visualization plugin, and it’s shown here synced to Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis”, one of my favorite 80’s pop Christmas songs. If you grew up in the MTV-still-played-music-videos era, this one should really take you back. Prepare to be amazed.
Here is the original Run DMC video.
*** UPDATE *** YouTube took down the videos – probably due to corporate pressure of copyright infringement. Way to ruin Christmas RIAA!
