What do the lights say?

As it turns out, they sound eerily similar to Ylvis’ “The Fox.”

Jay Perkins, 49, of Tulsa, Okla., created this light show on the exterior of his house, set to the catchy — or annoying — tune by the pop-comedy duo.

He began building the show on Nov. 1. He used 240 channels and between 25,000 and 30,000 LED lights. The singing trees set him back about $140 alone, based on the website he used to purchase them.

He said he chose the song in honor of his daughter and all the “hip parents” out there, after realizing his daughter and her friends can sing the song word for word.

Last year, he orchestrated a light show to Psy’s “Gangnam Style.”
