After a rather crappy 2020, an Indiana sanitation company put on a festive light show to remind Americans that not everything has gone down the toilet this year.
Service Sanitation, a portable toilet company in Gary, Indiana, dressed up their finest portable toilets with festively lit faces that appear to lip-sync to music.
The company set a World Record for the most animated faces on a single holiday light display by putting on a live performance of “Hallelujah” that featured thirty-two singing toilets, which they call “Jingle Johns, a lighted loo experience.”
HALLELUJAH, the end of 2020 is finally here! Fusing together the elements of lights, music, and #portapotties, the #JingleJohns have officially set a World Record for the most animated faces on a single holiday light display. pic.twitter.com/Hff1PGDXbd

Service Sanitation has been touring around Indiana churches, park districts, and stadiums with a four-piece portable toilet band – named Porta Paul, Carl Can, Buddy Blue and Linda Loo –that got leave from their day jobs at construction sites to perform a twenty-minute set of songs synced up to lights and music.
The company’s marketing manager, Stevie “Dee” Dykstra, conceptualized the idea as an alternative to sending bland company Christmas cards in 2013. Their first performance was a 40-john light show synced to a song by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Service Sanitation’s video went viral next year when they had the porta-potties put on a show to “The Christmas Can-Can. Their annual holiday videos have featured portable toilet lip-sync battles, potty rap featuring Snoop Dogg songs, and a rendition of “Go Cubs Go” during the 2016 world series.
Take a look at the portable loo spectacles the company has put on throughout the years.
