Tom and Tina Grusecki have come to be known in their Park Ridge, Illinois community for their spectacular Christmas lights displays.

They create a number of themed displays for the Christmas season, but one in particular has got people talking this festive season.

Their Prince-themed set, to the tune of "Purple Rain," has been far and away their most popular show among online viewers, with a video being watched more than 550,000 times on Facebook as of Wednesday lunchtime.

Their house is shrouded in purple for the display, with video images of Prince appearing on video boards erected as part of the display.

The resulting effect is awesome and is a proud tribute to the Purple One, even if it's in Illinois...
