As long as Pac-man has less scalding than Kid Nation, it’ll be great!

The Namco universe is out of balance. Just last night I was surfing and realized that Phoenix Arcade is now selling licensed vinyl Pac-man family artwork, and now this. 1/10th of the daily funny of dude running through U of M fishbowl chased by cloth ghost, it would be a success.

Pacman TV Show

Live Pac-man – PelletFail?

Deadline.com reported on Thursday last week that we may see an unscripted live Pac-man themed TV show. Currently in development, here is an interesting quote from TV Roy Bank’s myopic visionary Merv Griffith. Senor Merv sees the show as a “big, crazy Wipeout-type event with a lot of energy”.

Here’s my input Merv, because you asked for it.

Think Wipeout, but don’t do wipeout. Make it a blend of something like Double Dare, Gladiators, Jeopardy and most importantly – Dodgeball! Add in some other eastern gameshow influences and you’ve got a winner.

I would tune in to watch ‘Aw snap, ball in the face‘ before I’d watch a premise around Pac-man. Probably. They HAVE to dress up in the costumes though, definitely.

Just remember, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball” and “I’m on a boat”.

Nonsense – out. Nod to Becky P. for tipping me off to this story.

For fun, Fox News shared this video of Pac-man as it is meant to be on live TV, short and hilarious. Wish I’d been on campus for this.
