Halloween Light Show Set to 'Nightmare Before Christmas' Music Goes Viral [VIDEO]

Every year Kevin Judd, a technician at Verizon, decorates his house in Riverside, California, and an earlier video this year spurred requests for another, and thus, he created a new video, with a new pattern of lights.

His earlier video, "Halloween Light Show 2011 - Party Rock Anthem," has been joined by a new video, "Halloween Light Show 2011 - This Is Halloween ."

The prior video has 2.879 million views as of the time of this writing. The new video has about 2 million at this point, though the prior one does have a one day head start on it.

Here's how the blurb on the YouTube video describes his new Halloween video lightshow:

This one is for you all that sent me lots of messages stating you wanted to see the NBC song from the movie. Oh, dont mind my girl running out of the house...I didnt notice until after I was done filming.

2011 Halloween Light Show -- This Is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
4 singing pumpkin faces, tombstones, hand carved pumpkins, strobes, floods and thousands of lights. Most all lights have been changed from incandescent to RGB LED so power consumption is a lot less than previous years. Also DMX added to show. All lights, faces and props are custom made (DIY) by me except for the roof line which are CCRs. Controlling channels have gone up 8X from last year. 1144 channels. Light-O-Rama. Riverside, CA

One misconception might be that the neighbors might be annoyed by the light display. Apparently not, or at least, not those interviewed by pe.com.

Gay Worden, 67, who lives across the street with her daughter and granddaughter, and thus has a prime view of the display. If anyone would be annoyed, you'd expect her to be. According to Worden, police keep the crowd orderly. She said, “The biggest misconception is it is bothering the neighbors. The kids have a ball, and we're watching it like everybody else.”

Judd used software program Light-O-Rama for the sequence. He does most of the work himself, including building the light displays annually. You might expect that his electricity bill would be huge, and you'd probably be right, although he didn't detail it. He did say that his bill has been reduced somewhat through the use of LEDs. If any house is a walking advertisement for solar panels, Judd's probably is.

Take a look at the video below. Judd, 39, also has a number of other, older videos at his YouTube channel.

Enjoyed your light show tremendously, and so did all my friends. All of us in Texas are wondering if you're doing anything like this for Christmas.
