Plastic Tablecloths + Brilliance = Pac-Man: the Movie

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 11, 2008

Stanley Wong and Tyler Russel have made a Pac-Man movie from the ghosts’ perspective that is quite a hilarious piece of filmmaking. If you are (or ever have been) a retro gaming geek, then you’ll probably want to spend the 5 minutes it takes to watch this.

The premise is simple: this is the Pac-Man story from the rarely imagined viewpoints of those pesky ghosts, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde. To achieve this cinematically, the filmmakers have asked grown adult actors to don plastic tablecloths and deliver their lines with absolutely no sense of irony. Check out the video here:

Interesting how your perspective can change. Don’t you kind of think Pac-Man is a bastard now?

Someone get these guys a contract with Miramax, stat!
