TONGANOXIE, Kan.  — The Kansas City Chiefs have lit up the National Football League with their high-powered offense under Andy Reid.

Now, they also are lighting up a house in the 900 block of North Oak Terrace in Tonganoxie, where cars line up to catch a short Chiefs-themed show.

Brandon Masur has been working on a Christmas lights display on his home since August, which features more than 3,500 lights synchronized to Tech N9ne's "Red Kingdom."

"I would have never guessed people would have enjoyed it as much as they have," Masur said.

Masur's wife, Lindsay, said he was inspired after seeing a similar display last Christmas.

"Last year, he sent me a picture of some house that was synchronized to a song and he said, 'I'm going to do this next year,' and I was like, 'OK,'" she said. "Then, in August, he started buying stuff and I was like, 'Oh, OK, we're doing this.'"

Brandon said the Tech N9ne song was an easy choice for his display.

"It's perfect," he said. "I mean, it's got a good beat to it. Everybody loves it. It's kind of become an anthem throughout Chiefs Kingdom."

Brandon is proud that his display has shined a light on Chiefs Kingdom, connecting with fans across the country after Lindsay posted a video of the finished project that went viral on social media.

"It actually got picked up by some girl on TikTok as well and it's has almost 750,000 views on TikTok, so I would have never guessed it would have gone as big as it did," Brandon said.

The goal was to have the Christmas lights up by Thanksgiving night, but Brandon said working alone on the project took some extra time.

It was worth as hundreds of people have stopped by to catch the show, which Brandon said won't shut down on Christmas Day. He plans to keep the display up throughout the Chiefs' playoff run.

"I think after Christmas, the Chiefs stuff will stay up at least until our playoff drive is over and I have some plans to add some more," he said. "Hopefully, I'll get to add some Super Bowl stuff."

The Chiefs won the AFC West for the fourth consecutive season.
