Now here's a holiday tradition we could see ourselves getting into. Check out this little house decked out with electric lights set to flash and blink precisely to Slayer, courtesy of one real hands-on metal fan, a festive cache of electronics and a YouTube account his daughter signed him up for. Aw.
Watch as the neon horn hands flicker and a snowman lip-syncs along with Slayer (below) Machine Head (here) and Kittie (here). It builds. It rocks. It lights up the multicolor bushes to the guitar solo.
It began last Christmas when YouTube user "lacycute20" uploaded a grainy clip of his holiday light show in tribute to Pantera, a soon-to-be viral hit. This year's he's got better video quality and thousands upon thousands more views. Click away. And for a dad who prerequisites his videos with a photo of himself next to the legendary Ronnie James Dio's grave in Los Angeles, we know this one's from the heart.
He signs this one off like so: "THE LAST SONG FOR THIS YEAR.SLAYER LIGHTS NOT 100% HAPPY WITH .HAD SOME OTHER IDEAS BUT IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH.MY KITTIE AND MACHINEHEAD LIGHTS TURNED OUT GREAT . HOPE ALL THE METALHEADS ENJOY THE VIDEOS.THE PICTURE IS WITH RONNIE AT HIS GRAVE IN LOS ANGELES.AS ALWAYS SLAYER RULES..... SLAYERBOB."
Indeed, Slayerbob. Indeed.
