[VIDEO] Dubstep, Gangnam Style Christmas light shows early contenders for best 2012 display

If you’re a fan of stunning light shows synchronized to music (and who isn’t), you’ll love these two early contenders for best Christmas light show of 2012.

The first comes from Meridian, Idaho where a home owner spent two months synchronizing thousands of lights to  Skrillex’s “Bangaran” and “Cinema.”

“We have around 35,000 lights, and 80 Light O Rama Channels… And it’s all done by me, a 17 year old, and my dad,” writes Mr. Cadger on the YouTube video of the light show.

The second comes from John Storms, a Software Quality Insurance Engineer, who lives in Austin, Texas. Stornms not only has a website for his light shows, he also has a facebook page and a twitter account promoting them as well. His light shows have been featured on CNN, Good Morning America and on Bill O’Reilly’s show in the past, according to his website.

Ever wonder how these Christmas light artists’ neighbors feel about their eye-catching (but noisy and distracting) light shows? Storm notes on the homepage of his blog that he and his family recently had to move to an undisclosed location because of all the attention the light shows were drawing.

“We are not giving out our address since we have learned by mistake that this draws tons of cars. We love sharing the lights with everyone, but the location logistically can’t handle it,” he writes. “Getting the lights up this year almost didn’t happen. We were only in the house 2 months when the time came to start the install and I didn’t have any songs done. In the end we pulled it together and we have a decent playlist for this year.”

However, not only do the Cadgers invite you to come view their lights, they provide show goers with directions! To watch the Cadger show, stop by their house on Friday & Saturday nights from 5:30pm-11pm or Sunday-Thursday night from 5:30pm-9pm.

Happy viewing!
