If you’re looking for a few tips on how to do a killer Halloween light show, you should reach out to Steve Jandick, stat.
This Naperville, Ill., native recently uploaded a spooky light show set to the Kongos song “Come With Me Now.” Jandick synched this display so well, that it looks like the ghouls, goblins and jack-o-lanterns are actually singing along.
But, this isn’t the first time Jandick’s showed off his superior light show skills. No, no, he’s an old pro. He’s got nearly 50 videos within the last four years to prove it.
These videos feature musical acts ranging from Lady Gaga and Dr. Dre to LCD Soundsystem and Animal Collective. He even has a few Halloween classics like “Purple People Eater,” the Addams Family theme song and the “Monster Mash.”
Scrolling through Jandick’s video it does seem that he’s partial to rock radio faves including Fall Out Boy, whose song, “My Songs Know What You Did in The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” very fittingly soundtracks a lavish performance from every ghoul on the lawn. The flashing may give you a seizure, but it’s worth it.
He does however include shows featuring some classic artists including Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It will have you laughing, crying and wishing that you had the patience to synchronize your own light shows.
Jandick turns Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” into a ghoulish show that has those in the graveyard doing the Transylvania twist. Don’t worry it’s much less controversial than her original video for the track. Juicy J as Frankenstein is also a creative choice we can get behind.
