Does this count as youtube spam?

Okay, now that I have your attention, I'd love to divert it to this video: 
 
  

    
Now, before somebody actually does flag this as spam, hear me out. I'm pretty sure this song was in a Guitar Hero game before (though I can't remember which one...maybe 3?). And, really, who doesn't appreciate this kind of artistry? I'd also like to add that I was laughing throughout the entire thing.
 
Now, a follow up question. If you had the utter mastery of lights as this person does, which song from a game would you put onto your house? For me, I'd have to go with the Green Zone tune from Sonic games. While I hate Sonic, I think it would have tremendous potential as a light show.

I think you're only supposed to post stuff from YouTube if it's of your creation (ie, you hundo-percented a Guitar Hero song or something). I didn't flag you though, because you didn't intend it as spam. 
 
Also, I have seen similar things in person, just with Christmas music.  
 
And now Santa listens...TO SLAYER as well.

Its OK as long as you include original commentary to go with it.

Everything on Youtube is "Youtube spam," I wouldn't worry about it.

The title was intended as more of an attention grabber, in truth. My commentary could easily be summarized: that video is fucking awesome, ha. I thought it was cool that they chose a Slayer song from a Guitar Hero game, though. It made it somewhat relevant. And heck, maybe one day somebody that loves games will have the ambition to do the same rendition with a videogame tune.

Probably a Daft Punk song.  I guess from DJ Hero since it has to be from a game.

@nintendoeats: Okay, that makes sense.
