Utilizing fictional characters: Porta Paul, Carl Can, Buddy Blue and Linda Loo as an element of surprise during the holiday season, the 20-minute light show features several songs, cleverly-crafted narration and an opportunity for folks to take pictures using the hashtag #JingleJohns.



From an idea, to a drawing in a notepad, to a viral video, the #JingleJohns are now live and mobile.  They travel all around around Chicago, IL, Northwest Indiana, Indianapolis, IN, and Milwaukee, WI to sing songs and spread their holiday cheer.  Have you seen the #JingleJohns?



Fusing together the elements of lights, music, and portable restrooms, the #JingleJohns are retrofitted with computers that allow them to shine, talk and sing for all of their fans. Marketing Manager, Steve Dykstra, says, “it’s all about continuous innovation and achieving a new “wow factor” each year.”
