House's Holiday Audio-Visual Spectacular Becomes Miller Ad


It seems our story about the house that explodes with an audio-visual Holiday spectacular which we thought had nothing to do with advertising actually, as pointed out by Charley Brough, does. The house, which is decked out with 25,000 lights and computer-programmed to synchronize with Trans-Siberian Orchestra's "Wizards in Winter", had a visit from a Miller Brewing film crew which spent seven hours last Thursday filming this year's version of the spectacular to be included in an upcoming commercial.

The house, located in Deerfield Township, Ohio, is owned by the Williams family. Carson Williams, an electrical engineer for Cincinnati Bell Technology, spent three hours on each minute of music programming the lights to move in sync with "Wizards of Winter" and broadcasts the music with low power FM transmitter so that passersby can listen on their car radios while they watch the lights. In addition to the video of last year's spectacular in the original story, you can view the slightly bigger video here.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, some gawkers got in a car accident and, as promised, Williams has shut down his light show indefinitely.

Until this family showed up on The Today Show this AM, I thought that fwd I got two weeks ago was a digital creation. He says it only adds $150 to the monthly electric bill!

Watched the video of the house doing its thing: OH MY GAWD! It transcends bad or good. I just hope it causes car crashes on his street. You can't even think about telling this guy to "get a life," this is so beyond that. Imagine, creating an effect with your own two hands, that is a scene out of some big-budget Xmas "family comedy"-type movie -- just for the Hell of it, I guess. Unbelievable.
