Wyoming ‘Cowboy Joe’ Light Show Is A Christmas Classic [VIDEO]
Chad Rizner loves the Pokes. Just ask his neighbors. The school teacher, who now lives in Missouri, honored his alma mater with an epic holiday light display in 2014. Using a 64-channel control board, Rizner synced up over 24,000 lights to the "Cowboy Joe" fight song from the Wyoming Western Thunder marching band.
"I am a proud 1996 Graduate of the University of Wyoming. Go Pokes!," Rizner posted on YouTube. The video went viral and has since logged over 23,000 views.
Rizner has stepped up his Christmas lights game in recent years, upgrading to an 80-channel Light O Rama console powering over 25,000 lights. Along with "Cowboy Joe", he's also synced dazzling displays to holiday favorites like "Feliz Navidad", "Jingle Bells", "White Christmas", and even a version of Billy Joel's "Piano Man".
