This Has to be the Coolest Thing Coming From France Since French Fries

The French get a bad rap in pretty much every part of the world.  These fine people are either classified as p*ssies, or a*sholes, and more often than not you’ll hear about them in a negative light.  I’ve never been to France, so I can’t judge them, but after seeing this trippy a*s light show that they have going for the holidays, I can definitely say that the French can do more than stink and eat cheese.

I guess for the past 118 years the people of Lyon, France celebrate a Festival of Lights, which runs from 12/8-12/11.  This year they have animations being displayed on historic buildings that give them a sense of being alive.  It’s super cool looking, and like the post I originally read about this states, you definitely don’t need any psychedelic drugs to enjoy the show.  It’s quite amazing to see these buildings that are hundreds of years old come to life like they’re in the latest super duper special effects flick from James Cameron.  Check it out below.  If you’re in the area, the show runs through today.  You’ve been impressed by some creative Frenchies…
