Watch: The craziest LED Halloween light show you'll see all year
A Riverside, Calif., homeowner swaps out incandescent bulbs for energy-saving LEDs for his absolutely bonkers annual Halloween light show, bringing relief to his utility bill but probably not to his neighbors.
It takes something truly special to leave this viral video-savvy blogger speechless, and I think the below clip from YouTube user KJ92508 just managed to do so (okay, so maybe that Hermain Cain campaign video did as well, but it’s nowhere nearly as dazzling).
Apparently for the past few years, this otherwise unexceptional suburban Riverside, Calif., home has been literally dancing up a storm (and dancing up quite the energy bill, I’d imagine) as part of a festive Halloween light show that makes the Disneyland Main Street Electrical Parade look like child’s play.
For this year’s series of musical “performances,” the mastermind behind it all, a 39-year-old Verizon employee named Kevin Judd (AKA YouTube user KJ92508) switched out most of the display’s incandescent bulbs for low-energy, long-lasting LEDs. He notes that “power consumption is a lot less than in previous years,” but I’m guessing it’s still pulling quite a bit of juice from the grid. Maybe next year Judd's home will be sporting rooftop photovoltaics to further lower the impact of his super bananas Halloween light extravaganza.
