New ‘Pac-Man’ parody levels up into noir territory
The stars of the classic Pac-Man video game series get a noir makeover in a new video parody by animator Chris Weller.
“Goodnight Sweet Pakman” begins with a sweet moment between Mr. & Mrs. Pac-Man before the stakes are dramatically raised, as Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde — now not just floating beasties but hitghosts armed to the (metaphorical) teeth — come tearing down their block guns a-blazing, literally.
Of course, the couple can count on their trusty power pellets to turn the tide. But as they level up, the ghosts’ arsenal becomes more vast. Suffice to say, hope you have some extra quarters.
