looked closely at this one. though it definitely took some time, thought, and genius, it doesn't seem to be real. if you look closely, you'll see a guy standing somewhere near the mailbox/street in the middle of the screen. his suttle movements are quite rapid, indicating that the footage of the lights at different lighting intervals was taken, and then sped up and matched to music. in my opinion, this was not done live, but rather a compilation of turning on various lights...filming...turning them off...filming...turning on another set...filiming....etc. then, it is sped up...matched to music...and presto!

No kidding.... It'* basically like stop motion animation, but with Christmas lights.

Of course it is. I never did think or mention that it was done live. It took time to do that and edit the video to music.
