I think there's a mis-communication. LMFAO is the group that does the song in the video, not a statement of mirth. They're trashy pop music, hence the warning I guess.

I wonder if this is the same guy who did his Christmas light display to Slayer.

Check out the older versions on the user's channel - I'm pretty sure the thriller one was posted here a few years ago.

Yeah, this guy does this every year, and it doesn't look like he's bought any new toys (same pumpkin faces, etc) from the last year or two.

So - it's that shitty Mozeltov song + Boys Noize.
God, no wonder life sucks. We get dealt this shitty music.

My favorite bit of Halloween decoration insanity was my dad buying a spray that was supposed to smell like blood. But I grew up in the suburbs, and it was Serious Business there. I remember Don Imus always had the best house for trick or treating....

I kinda liked last year's display better, but I admire that he continues to try new stuff. And why not, considering he must have several thousand dollars invested in the computer controls, no?

Yeah I know the one you mean, it's called ART-erial Spray.

If only someone would come up with a catchy name for grinning pumpkins, Halloween festivities would be complete.

According to the description he made the pumpkins.

The auto-tune killed it for me.. otherwise fairly cool as evidenced by previous Thriller entry.

Grumpkins?

I've always wondered what the regional pattern was for saying "grumpkin" vs. the far more popular "blumpkin."

The actual video for this song has almost 254 million views right now. That's how old you are.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the tastes and priorities of this home-owner.

So I'm old because I'm not doing what everybody else is doing?

Judging by the number of different houses with pretty much the same light show showing up in the 'related videos', I'd wager that there's a kit available to put this on.

Data-point here: I am old (as evidenced by no one having taught me how to dougie, and only recently being exposed to Nicki Minaj) and I can't get enough LMFAO.

However, by being old, I am not sure if LMFAO is the Outkast "Hey Yeah" good type of inescapable, or the infuriating "My Humps" terrible type of inescapable.

It's not that I'm old. It's just that I'm a cynical asshole. When that music plays all I hear is some synth mixed in with an endless stream of shit noises. The music, if you can call it that, is complete shit. And I don't mean that in a figurative sense. The whole thing just sounds like a non-stop chorus of assholes with Montezuma's Revenge.

Man, Jesusween is getting so commercialized.

I've listened to this song all the way through and I gotta say, I'm not totally sure where the party rock is actually at.

I like these halloween displays -- variations on the same theme -- Singing busts or pumpkins, version 1, version 2 or version 3. Interesting that it's taken 50 years for the rest of us to catch up to Disney technology.

All that proves is that a bunch of people made bad decisions 254 million times.

This is the best thing ever and I wish it was next door to me, even though it would expose my one battered plastic skeleton, rotting pumpkin and threadbare flags for the lame attempt they are.

Also, you guys... I love this song. I mean, I could do without the blonde chick singing. There's something kind of pure about the synthed voices. But it is really pretty and has a nice beat. If I was the sort of person who rocked parties, I would rock parties to this.

I wasn't commenting on the quality of the song, and I'm late to the party too.. More and more lately, when I open the weekly publication to see what concerts are coming, all I see is Ø∏åß˚œ is touring with ß∫µ˜∂∑ and ı◊§•∆ø7 is opening, and both nights are sold out!
Saves me money on shows though.

This is cool. The original video spawned a frenzy of T-stepping, shuffling and Sponge-Bobbing among the tweens of the quinby brood.
posted by jquinby at 7:37 AM on October 25, 2011


Weirdly, I just discovered LMFAO last week (and yes, I attribute this to my being old...) My wife has been obsessed with them ever since.

I find this ok, because they seem fairly ridiculous, and I like ridiculous.

(Although this strikes me as one of those things that the people in the house, once this Halloween is over, are never going to want to hear this song ever again.)

I would have no problem with the neighbours evicting him, and then burning the house to ground.
