NEWARK, Calif., Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A California music teacher turned his home into a viral video star with a Christmas light display set to music from "Star Wars."

Tom BetGeorge of Newark set his Christmas lights, which include a giant light-up guitar and piano, to sync up with music selected from all six "Star Wars" films, including moments when the giant instruments "are playing real notes."


The display also includes a light saber duel between two roof-mounted lights.

BetGeorge, a music teacher at Conservatory in Oakland and Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont, said his "Star Wars" lights have been featured on Good Morning America and will appear on ABC's The Great Christmas Light Fight.

BetGeorge said in the video's description his neighbors are "very supportive" of his extravagant Christmas light displays because he uses them to "raise money for the poor."
