I thought for a minute it was George Simmons in this competition til I saw it was someone in California. George probably wishes he was there and not in the lovely Minneslowta winter...lol

We'll be rooting for you!!  Maybe after the show airs, you can tell us about your experience.   I'm sure you are under some kind of nondisclosure clause right now.

This is my wifes friend from high school. I always wanted to sync the lights to music but after seeing his show last year I made the jump into LOR. I have to go back and check it out again

I used to drive by the winners house when I still lived there. Believe me, it didn't look like that.

 

So you mean it looked worse than what they showed on TV (i.e. like somebody threw up all over his front yard)?

The Elf family might have won if their display wasn't a hybrid one.  I'm of the opinion that static displays and animated displays shouldn't be mixed at the same time.  Plus, they should have chosen a better song, and sequenced it better.  Heck - I'd have done it on spec if they promised me a cut.

I'm the elf you guys are talking about. Actually the show screwed up my song. The footage you song was not even the same sequence. They used Christmas Eve audio and my blurred lines sequence which is why the sequence looked bad. I was not happy about that. If you go to my website you can see what the song is actually supposed to look like. I actually don't really like the inflatables anymore after going animated but my wife and kid love them so that is why I keep them together is for the kids.

When you can, I'd love to hear the details.

Hi Everyone,

 

My family and display will be on the 12/23 at 9pm EST episode.

It was an amazing and sometimes crazy experience. The people we worked with from ABC and Fremantle couldn't have been better!

 

One thing that they asked was for us to not update our web sites or social media sites with any info about our 2013 displays until after our episode airs.

 

I'll post more about the experience after the 23rd, but set your DVRs and root us on.

 

With a little hunting, you can find web sites of some sort about each of the families.

 

My congrats to Kevin Lynch and everyone who participated in Episode 1.

 

Merry Christmas,

 

Tony
