Silliest / Most Annoying Questions / Comments You Got This Year

Recommended Posts

Here's an idea: Get a small camera pointing at the crowd area and feed it to a switch near the video projector.

At the appropriate moment, switch the projector to the live camera feed and people will see themselves, but only for a few seconds. Keeps interest.

The frequency I used for my display was/is very close to a local Dallas station that plays Christmas music from mid-November through Christmas.

 

I was asked once, "How did you get the radio station to play the music you need?" Except they used the station call letters when asking the question. They really thought I had the radio station playing music just for my display.

 

I have had a couple of people ask me that!

Not annoying though...

I had a women ask, "So, do the lights flash different for each song?" You mean I could have done one sequence and just pasted it on all my songs? What a time saver that would have been.

The best one I got this year was "Are you Jewish because we didn't hear any Christmassy songs?" They had the wrong radio station tuned in.

I've learned over the years that when children ask "How do you make the lights do that?" the reply that gets the biggest smiles is to tell them "Santa loaned me some elves and they are in the garage turning the lights on and off."

My question was "is it easy?"  I love to tell them how LONG it takes to program a song and watch their jaw drop. Looks kind of like this  :o  :blink:

This past year around mid October we were putting the lights on the 2nd story of the house and someone was driving by and stopped, they were like "putting up Christmas light?", my brothers comment was "nope, getting ready for 4th of July early" lol

 

 

 

Wait for it…

Pretty much the same;

  1. The electric bill question
  2. How much does it cost?
  3. How long does it take to put this up?
  4. How did you get that radio station to play your songs?
  5. Where to you store all that stuff?
  6. How dows the neighborhood react.

2014 will be my first year for an LOR display.  A guy a couple miles from me has a pretty good display up and he was handing out candy canes in front of his house to the crowd.  When I had a chance to talk to him, my first question was:

 

"How many channels are you running and how long does it take you to sequence that?"

 

I was instantly his best friend.

 

(turns out he had 171 channels and took 10 hours per minute of song)

 

And then I asked all the stupid questions listed above.  He was happy to discuss knowing what I was about to get myself into.
