I wonder if that is the actual speed of the lights are just a low FPS in the video. If it is indeed the speed of the actual display, then I think it would cause siezures amongst the neighbors. Other than that, I think it's neat.

The Trans Siberian Orchestra one is pretty cool, but that Jingle Bells one (especially the song itself) is downright annoying!

I agree, I'd like to see it, but I sure wouldn't want to live next to this guy. :D

I received this in my email. Thought the same thing as the OP. This dude has way too much time on his hands. i also like the trans orchestra better than the jingle bells. Pretty cool if its real though

The one they showed on Inside Edition was different. I guess it was this year's edition. He even had the song "God bless the USA" this year! How cool!

This house was featured tonight on our local news. It is real! They were talking about the thousands of people who have been to see it. One night there was a car accident and the police were complaining because they couldn't get to the accident due to the long line of cars circling around. The music is broadcast on an FM frequency, so you can listen in the car as you drive by, or well, park in front of the dude's house and watch! :g_laughin

I just read that they had to shut the house down because of the accident and to much traffic. What a shame. At least it can be enjoyed still on the computer!:(

I still think this is totally awesome. :yelclap: I can't believe it only adds about 150.00 to his Dec. electric bill. Wonder how much it cost to do the whole set up?

I heard on our local news last night that the guy had to pull the plug on this display because the amount of people coming to view his lights had created a public traffic hazzard. -Mark-

I saw this on the news this morning. This man put together a light show to music from the Transiberian Orchestra. Fantastic display. He admits to being a computer geek. LOL! He even has a FM transmitter hooked up to his computer so that you can tune in on your radio. Miller Beer heard about it and wants to use it in a commercial. After a fender bender in front of his home the police forced him to shut it down. He says he'll be back next year though!

Click on the link and then click on the "Read" right above the "Recent Entries" line.

A lot of time went it to this! Enjoy!

Now see, I was under the impression that the police would have charged him with something. I can't quite remember...maybe a public hazard or something like that.

I know alot of people didn't like it, but I did. I don't know if I would like it if I were his neighbor and had to see and hear it everyday.

"But this week, Carson Williams became a victim of his own success. After a fender bender in front of the lights, the cops told Carson that the display was becoming a public safety threat. So he pulled the plug until next year." The above was taken from the CBS website. Personally I think they should allow it. Couldn't they, I guess if the neighbors agreed, set up a time every evening to allow him to put on his display and just rope off the street so that you would have to walk to see it. That would avoid the fender benders. It would cause an inconvenience but there are only a few weeks until Christmas.

The article I read said something different. Sorry.

:( He was on the Today show last week (when it was still up n running) I dont see any difference from stopping to see the light show or someone stopping to read a yard sale, car for sale, or any other advertisements or slowing down to see anything....could be regular Christmas lights, sitting along the street. His neighbors were fine with it. If anybody had a fender bender I say its their (drivers) problem. He did say on the show any problems at all he would shut it down. Sad it was very cool:g_thumble
