This Masterful ‘Star Wars’ Christmas Lights Display Will Defeat The Dark Side Of The Force

Oh so you think you like “Star Wars”? Would you call yourself a superfan? Well, ask yourself, did you take the time to cue up several of the movie’s most recognizable song with a Christmas lights display that goes so far to even simulates a lightsaber fight? If not, then you’re not on the same level as YouTube user Tom BetGeorge, whose “Star Wars”-themed holiday tribute is the most next level thing you will see this Christmas.

BetGeorge is a music teacher at the Oakland’s Conservatory of Vocal and Instrumental Arts, and honestly his musical background shows, as the lights sync up perfectly to a medley of composer John Williams’ songs including “The Imperial March (Darth Vader’s Theme),” “Binary Sunset” and “Cantina Band.” But it isn’t just the music that makes this show so spectacular—BetGeorge also used about 100,000 lights to create the display.

Ready for some more unbelievable numbers involved in the light display? BetGeorge spent 1,000 hours creating it and used approximately two miles of cables and 5,000 wires. And there’s more—Tom is using the attention from the display to raise money for his church’s program that provides meals for the homeless.

The video of his masterpiece is attracting more and more attention, and Tom said he was surprised that it became so popular.

“Honestly, it’s a little surreal. It’s humbling,” he told Yahoo News. “I anticipated that a lot of people [would] like ‘Star Wars,’ but I didn’t expect it to blow up like that.”
