Seven years ago, Dan Deacon turned heads with his local television appearance on WSAV Savannah’s Coastal Sunrise morning news show. Last night, however, the electronic guru finally returned to the boob tube for his national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he performed America single “True Thrush”.

In his style, Deacon kept things innovative by having the live, in-studio audience utilize Deacon’s smartphone app to become a part of the performance’s light show. In a cool twist, this marked the first time an interactive, artist-created app was used in conjunction with an audience on network television. So, yeah, someone phone Guinness and check out his wizardry below, courtesy of The Audio Perv.

In related news, Deacon recently dropped a mashup mixtape titled, Wish Book Vol 1, which you can download here. He also appeared on a hilarious episode of Rock it Out! Blog.
