Christmas lights' "Gangnam Style" [VIDEO]

  • comments

Every year since 2005, Kym Illman, an Australian man from Perth, creates a spectacular Christmas lights show in order to raise money for charity.

This year Illman decided to sync Christmas lights displayed on his home to PSY's hit song "Gangnam Style". His aim is to raise money for an Australian rules football team in a country town where he owns a holiday home.

"€œI spent a lot of time trying not to do it to ‘Gangnam Style’ because I thought the song was overdone," Illman told "But there was nothing else as catchy and unrelenting."

Over the past 7 years Illman raised more than $90,000. The video's description says:

Bishop Riley Way, Churchlands, Western Australia. STATS: 41,000 bulbs, 2,000 light channels, 2kms of cable & 200 hours to set up. My past displays have raised more than $90k for community projects. And what does it cost in power? An extra $10/week - that's it! It's all LED and for most of the 3 hours/night, less than 50% of the lights are running at any time. But frankly, the video doesn't do it justice, you have to see it live!
