Halloween Light Show Set to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody

Your front porch pumpkin is cute and all, but in terms of great Halloween decorations? You're gonna want to stand down. Naperville, Ill., friends Steve Jandick and Nick Thomas have won Halloween.


The longtime light-stringing duo have been coming up with over-the-top light shows and decorations on Nick Thomas' front lawn since 1999. They've accumulated a bunch of decorations over the years and put it all out — statues, tombstones, maybe the occasional pumpkin. But the real draw — and dread from some neighbors — have been the musical light shows.

They've choreographed flashing lights to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," with a skull light-lip syncing Freddie Mercury's lyrics, including the ooo-wee-ooo. There are 29 other songs in lights cued up, including Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" and a perfect show of Vincent Price's coda from Michael Jackson's "Triller."

Thomas, 60, has had Janick's help with the light show for 15 years. Janick, 25, even came back to Naperville during his college years. Now, he lives 10 miles away.

This is no last-minute operation, either. Kids haven't even started ringing Thomas' doorbell and Janick is already picking song's for next year, he told the Today Show.

Carry on, Nick and Steve, carry on.
