70 Houses Around the World Synchronized Xmas Lights to Can’t Stop the Feeling from Trolls (film) | @jtimberlake
What an incredible undertaking! 70+ participants around the world synchronized their Xmas lights to the song Can’t Stop the Feeling, with the aid of free open-source software xLights.
Thanks to Jorden for sending this in!
Watch – and listen!
The animated Christmas light community is booming!
Given the same song, we asked people from around the world to animate their houses to Can’t Stop the Feeling from Trolls.
The response was amazing. This is a compilation of 73 submissions.
