‘Urban Pacman' Takes the Iconic Game to the Streets

‘Urban Pacman’ is a new video that shows what life would be like if Pac-Man and Inky (the emerald ghost) existed in real-life. The video was created by Sergej Hein who was previously featured on Trend Hunter for his Berlin Block Tetris video.

The Berlin Block Tetris video (Tetris played with apartment buildings) was good, but ‘Urban Pacman’ is better. The video starts out with a man drinking a liquid that turns him into the iconic yellow circle. From there the video becomes an all-out chase through the streets of an unknown European city (possibly Berlin). The twist ending to the video is good, but the greatest part of ‘Urban Pacman’ has to be the reactions from the bystanders on the street. Needless to say, two men chasing each other in Pac-Man costumes can attract a lot of attention.
