Oh, it’s on: Random pedestrians get to control park Christmas lights display

Even though they might be a pain to put up, one of the best parts of the holiday season is looking at all of the different holiday light displays. But, what if you could control the lights too?

That’s what some New Yorkers got a chance to do when Improv Everywhere, the same New York-based prank collective that organizes the annual No Pants Subway Ride, set up a giant light switch in a Manhattan park.

When random folks flip the big switch, lights twinkle not only on the trees, benches and fountain, but on people walking around the park as well. When the switch is turned off, the lights disappear and the brightly decorated people freeze in place. It’s Christmas magic!

If you’re thinking of stepping up your neighborhood Christmas-lights game, you should really consider installing one of these giant switches in your front yard. Just saying.
