Essex Man Pays Tribute to the Prodigy's Keith Flint with Elaborate Christmas Light Show
It syncs up with "Out of Space," "Warriors Dance" and "Omen"
Published Dec 16, 2019A U.K. is paying homage to local legend Keith Flint of the Prodigy with a wild Christmas light show in Braintree, Essex.
Rik Burt has honoured the late Prodigy frontman with a light display featuring more than 3,000 bulbs that flash in sync with "Out of Space," "Warriors Dance" and "Omen."
Burt told Essex Live that it took more than 30 hours to program the lights using online software — just for "Omen." The music was all mixed in sync to the lights by Burt's 14-year-old neighbour Ben Wood. The show also contains the Game of Thrones theme tune and "Be Prepared" from The Lion King.
"Last year we had 'Baby Shark,'" Burt said. "I never want to hear that song again — it was a struggle. We have three different songs this year but I am already getting bored of them already so I might change two, but the Prodigy song will stay."
He added, "I'm into my metal mainly. But the Prodigy bridged the divide between the genres really well."

Flint died earlier this year at the age of 49.
