Holly Santa Claus, being a YouTube sensation can cause a traffic jam.

John Storms and his family have been putting together eye-popping holiday light shows for years without a hitch, but this year’s display has become too popular.

Their “Gangnam Style” Christmas show went viral this week and was driving too many rubberneckers to their doorstep. Feeling overwhelmed, and probably to keep the peace with the neighbors, the Stormses decided to keep the lights on but ditch the music.

Guess they didn’t want to be bad neighbors. But we suspect many will miss it.
