'Gangnam Style' Halloween light show? Bring it!

October 24, 2012|By Deborah Netburn

The "Gangnam Style" tie-ins just keep getting stranger. This video of a Halloween light show set to Psy's "Gangnam Style" is starting to get traction on YouTube, thanks to a flurry of interest from the media.

The house is located in the Edwards Landing neighborhood of Leesburg, Va.,  about 33 miles west of Washington.

On his YouTube page, the lighting mastermind identifies himself only as "Edwards Landing Lights," but thanks to the Washington Post, we know he is Brandon Bullis, a father of three.

He programmed 8,500 lights to click on and off in sync with 13 songs. Only one other song -- "This is Halloween" by Marilyn Manson -- has been uploaded on his YouTube channel. It hasn't received the same attention as the "Gangnam Style" video, but the camera angle is certainly more interesting.

People who park their cars outside Bullis' house will enjoy a 25-minute show that incorporates about half the songs in his repertoire. If you want to see everything he's got, you'll have to go by on consecutive nights.

On his information-packed Facebook page, Bullis explains the ground rules for attending the show as well as the light show times -- 7:15 p.m. to 10 p.m. on school nights and 7:15 p.m. to 11 p.m. on non-school nights.

He does not however, publish his address. If you want to figure out exactly where the house is, you'll have to do some detective work.

Still, that hasn't stopped people from showing up. Earlier this week, he noted on his Facebook page that he had just caught some people doing Psy's horse dance outside his home.

"....sometimes my view is better than yours :-)" he wrote.
