Christmas lights go "Gangnam Style:" See the holiday video that's gone viral

From the streets of Seoul, Korea to the suburbs of Cedar Park, Texas “Gangnam Style” has now reached a fame only the 21st century can quantify. The “Gangnam Style” YouTube video has reached over 1 billion views, making it the most viewed video on the site.

 The "Gangnam Style" Listen to Our Lights video has already prompted over 700,000 views after being featured on CNN.

Of course "Gangnam Style" isn’t the first viral-inspired holiday light show for Listen to Our Lights. Remember the Internet’s Hampster Dance? Listen to Our Lightssynced holiday lights to that rodent rave tune for one of their presentations last year.

Other wacky tunes of years past have included the Angry Birds Theme Song, a techno version of "Carol of the Bells", and "Jingle Dogs", which is exactly what it sounds like.
