From the archives: Even more live-action Pac-Man

Created by fellow Craver Tim Moynihan.

This morning, when I wrote up a post about The Go! Team 's music video featuring live-action Pac-Man, I traced its roots back to a 2004 phenomenon known as Pac-Manhattan. Little did I know that the history of guys in Pac-Man suits goes back even further than that: extending, in fact, to a silent film made by fellow Craver Tim Moynihan in 2002. Called "The Current Adventures of Pac-Man," this flick features a 37-year-old Pac-Man, now alcoholic and "haunted by the ghosts of his past."

Tim is behind the camera, so unfortunately that's not him in the Pac-Man outfit. But it's nevertheless a nice little piece of history.
