In 2017, a young motorist from Canberra, Australia, spent 40 hours attaching 20,000 fairy lights to his Hyundai Santa Fe.
Jordan Wallace had previously placed 10,000 lights on his Holden Astra in 2016 and told Daily Mail Australia that he was inspired by a similar car he saw during Christmas as a child.
