“Call Me Maybe” and “Gangnam Style” Christmas Light Shows

20121209-013316.jpgHow much did you budget this year for your electricity bill? Just wondering.

My sister, Susan, showed me several lip sync versions of “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen this summer–the Naval Academy, the US Olympic Swim Team, and more. This latest in lawn ornamentation, though, is unreal. The house and yard lights are synchronized to match the music. It makes the Griswold’s efforts look lame. Here’s a YouTube video of a house in Chesapeake, VA, and the Holt Family has a website gives directions. Their light show is synchronized to not one, but four, songs–including “Gangnam Style.”

As if this wasn’t enough. There are two houses that have synchronized lights to “Call Me Maybe.”Β The second one is equally amazing. Michael Rosenwald’s Washington Post blog reported that a Bel Air, Maryland man has set up 10,000 lights in homage to the pop hit.

Finally, check out this house in Perth, Australia. According to “The 12 Days of ‘Gangnam Style Christmas Light Displays,” the house was shut down after only three days because of the crowds it was attracting. The same article has several links to “Gangnam Style” light shows. I guess you can spend all night watching the videos on YouTube and skip the cold and the crowds.
