  1. “I hate my job.”

    Never mind, I don’t think you’ll be doing it for much longer.
    Nicely faked though!

    1.  Yeah, weaving secret messages into christmas displays seems like the most fun someone could have at work.  So either, this is fake, this person had already been fired or put in notice, or they have a mental illness that keeps them from experiencing joy.

      1. You have no idea the amount of joy I would experience were I tasked to put up municipal christmas lights, and I got to try this shit on them…

  2. Thank God for the Grinch who did this!

    EDIT: It’s easy to shout fake on the internet, but I dunno how you would even fake something like this. Is there a video Photoshop with a Christmas Lights in 3d filter? Is this something everybody knows about but me?

    1. It seems it was done in after effects. Just some particles arranged in 3d, forming the shapes you want, and then tracked into that 3d space from the camera movement. 

      1. Hey, just because it’s gentle satire, that doesn’t mean it’s not real!
        The best satire would have clearly been volunteering to put up Christmas lights and then doing so. :D

  3. I don’t care that this is fake, it’s made me and I everyone I’ve shown it to chortle, and thus it is brilliant. I especially like the far-flung droplet in the first one.

  4. Please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please be real in spite of evidence to the contrary please

    1. The Grinch is real. You just have to believe. Just because he has helpers, and just because some of them use photoshop, doesn’t make him any less real.

    1. I only read the headline about the Giant Duck thing. Something to do with teaching the British to have a laugh. If this was the case, it missed the target for me. I have a laugh. I don’t need some tosser telling me to do it. A Giant Rubber Duck is not funny. McGreens, your comment was funny. I am having a laugh.

      In unrelated news, Gideon Osborne is an appalling git. He is so bad, they named a village in the Shetlands after him.

  5. Fake, but well done.

    Good enough that several people in my office (that overlooks some of the alleged lights) went out on to the balcony to see if they could see them…
