Anything that helps recreate the joy of the Vegas strip at home is all right in my book. With just conductive nickel paint, an AC power supply, epoxy, nickel magnets, and some LED lights (okay, there are a few additional ingredients, but those are the basics), you can light up your fridge like the MGM Grand. Instructables, a site for showing what you've made and how others can make it, has mapped out all the do-it-yourself steps, but basically, you glue the lights to your fridge and power them magnetically by conducting electricity through nickel paint. It may be more work than slapping up some magnetic poetry, but recreating '80s video game characters on your freezer is worth the investment.
