It's a holiday viral video. Some people are waiting hours in line to see a Christmas light show that's fueling a traffic jam in a South Tulsa neighborhood.

It's timed to the popular song, "What Does The Fox Say?" The show is so popular the homeowner has asked us not to tell where he lives in order to prevent gridlock. 

"It's caused such chaos, and I didn't mean for that to happen," said homeowner Jay Perkins.

He doesn't mind if people find the location on their own.

His light show using more than 25,000 LED bulbs and a popular song has the neighborhood humming and bumping with cars. It's like a carpool of families waiting to hear that popular song we've all played over and over again - matched perfectly to a light show.

"What does the fox say?" asked Hillary Nelson, spectator.

"We thought we would be waiting a while or have to get our and see it, but it's not bad at all," said spectator Anne Nelson. "We got a good spot."

Rod Marshall brought his son Caiden to see the display.

"His favorite song right now is 'What Does The Fox Say?' So I know he was really going to enjoy the lights and dance to the music," Marshal said. "What'd you think buddy?"

"It's still back on," Caiden said.

Marshall is sure the more this catches on, the crazier it will be.

Believe or not Jay Perkins didn't like putting up Christmas lights in his front yard. He got creative one year with his experience as an electrical engineer. Now his neighborhood has been transformed into a winter theme park.

"It's good, and it's bad," Perkins said. "The kids - I like the kids to see it, but I don't want to burn the neighbors."

He's shortened the show to four songs to keep cars from wrapping around the block. Now his video he made of the show for friends and family has more than 300,000 views on YouTube.

"I get emails from people I've never heard of before," he said.

The neighbors actually like the show. The neighbor across the street actually suggested the viral song to be used in the show.

Next Year's display is a secret - but bigger, much bigger.
