People who drive Tesla's Model X have a cool "easter egg" feature built right into their vehicle: a holiday music and light show set to the tune of Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s "Wizards In Winter"! When activated, this all-electric luxury vehicle will display a synchronized show using the car's headlights, turn signals, and falcon wings.
The video above was shot by a woman in Ohio who writes:
"My daughter and I were going to deliver her fundraiser sales when she stopped me and said mom look it’s a Tesla! It was in our next door neighbors driveway and honestly I didn’t know what was so special about the car. We are pretty close with our neighbors so we went over to ask who’s car it was and here it was their insurance guys car. He heard us ask and said come on out and let me show you something. My husband wasn’t home at the time so I wanted to video it to show him later. I was amazed with it to say the least and thought everyone else would like to see it to, so I posted it on Facebook..."
Here's a better look at it, a video from 2015 showing three vehicles in sync:
More importantly, here's how to turn on the show:
Press and hold the Tesla “T” for 5 seconds
When the “PLEASE ENTER ACCESS CODE” prompt appears, enter the code “holiday” or “ModelXmas” and press “OK”
A prompt will appear that reads “The show will begin after you exit the car, close all doors and press the lock button on the key. The show requires 6 feet of space above and around the vehicle.”
Step out of the car and enjoy the show!
