This family not took only surpassed the standard Christmas lights and reindeer decorations, but it even took Christmas light shows to a whole new level.
Warning, the video really kicks off at the 6:38 mark.
And at 7:57 the hit song "Let it go," from the movie Frozen cues up.
Matt and Melissa Johnson, along with their two kids, designed their own unique, dubstep light show around their home in San Antonio Texas.
Here’s a description from the Matt Johnson’s YouTube page:
Started in 2013, our show is not your traditional light show! There are no inflatables, characters, blow molds, or other "traditional" elements. Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom sound track composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, movie clips and even our children! The result is an exciting show that feels like a dance party! Even the lights are not traditional, we use Pixels which are similar to what you would see in a stadium Jumbotron. Each pixel can be controlled individually and set to any color and intensity. This means many more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights! The show embodies the spirit of DIY and cutting edge technology with all custom built elements, kit based controllers, and both custom and open source software. We hope you like our show, thanks for visiting!
Here’s the 10-minute Christmas light show in all its awesomeness.
And if you’re wondering how long this took, according to Matt Johnson on the family’s website, “Depending on how natural the creativity is flowing, I would say I average 6-10 hours of sequence programming for every 10 seconds of finished show.” You can do the math, but basically, that is a ton of work.
Just in case you want to attempt this masterpiece on your own, Matt Johnson even explains here on his website and on his YouTube page how some of his displays are created.
