Watch the Empire State Building Give Its First-Ever Light Show

By Peter Ha on at

Were you lucky enough to be in NYC last night? Thought not.

In case you missed it, the Empire State Building flexed its fancy new Philips Colour Kinetics LED lighting system muscles for its first-ever light show. A myriad of colours sprinkled the sky perfectly in sync with Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" and "Empire State of Mind".

The new system can display more than 16 million colours in a variety of ways as evidenced by last night's show. Earlier this month during the presidential election, CNN commandeered the ESB to display election results.

It's pretty neat that the ESB has entered into a new era but it kinda makes me think it belongs in Vegas now. [Gawker]
