Making a KISS flashing sign. How do I make the lights chase?

Any KISS fans out there?
I want to make the flashing KISS logo like they have on stage (only much smaller) and I need an easy way to make the LED lights chase from the K to the I to the S to the last S, then turn on all 4 letters at the same time for 5 seconds, then repeat the sequence.

What would be the easiest most reliable way to accomplish this?

I would look at making a matrix out of WS2812B LEDs and drive it with arduino.
Here is just one example:,

You can program using libraries like FASTLED available for the ardunio.

You could use p10 panels.

There fairly cheap on AliExpress.
Just make sure there’s a library that supports the scan rate you buy.
