WHOEVER put up Brighton’s Christmas lights this year seems to be a bit more of a Scrooge than a Santa.

A video of the decorations has emerged that reveals a series of rude images and angry messages hidden among the baubles and bright lights.

Look carefully, and you can make out the words "I Hate My Job" in a cluster of fairy lights; elsewhere the bulbs form the outline of a certain part of the male anatomy not usually associated with Christmas.

“Stunning!" wrote one YouTube user. Sadly, the video is a hoax cooked up by Brighton traders to promote their businesses.
