    With all the houses, the moving view with the drone. Im going 100% real. The lights never lose the angles of the homes or tree lines. So Im sold in it being real. He has another video of Mariah Carey song as well.

    I've taken video of my display and some of the lights look like they were "photo-shopped" in.

    Ether way it would be pretty cool to have a bunch of houses synchronised.

    Either way it's still cool that someones gone to all the effort to either do the lights and video or just the video.

    Wonder how they get power across the sidewalk to the trees on the otherside.


    Also with this type of neighborhood it has got to be HOA...

    Its very impressive as far as scale goes but I thought a lot more could have been done with the sequencing to take advantage of whole street sweeps, but its a lot of every house doing the same thing at the same time. Still looks great though

    I agree. Goes to show bigger isn't always better. Can you imagine a colour sweep going at 20km/h keeping pace with a slow driving car. Or a colour wave.

    I'm more impressed with the drone photography. Those things are amazing and give a total new aspect to video taping.
