This splendid muscle car take on Pac-Man is indeed a “most wanted” video. To see that is.
Pac-Man’s cheery pellet-eating hijinks might be fine and dandy for the kids, like that 3D CGI animated cartoon in the works, but how about something a little more high-octane with roaring engines and the burning of fossil fuels that makes the caveman parts in our adult brains go OGA OGA OGA! and what not?
Well, Kooberz Studios – headed by stellar professional animator and Lego enthusiast Alex Kobbs – has thankfully served up exactly just that with one of his latest video projects, Pac-Man: Most Wanted, a relatively short YouTube vid that thematically blends both arcade classic and popular modern-day racer into one.
Alex’s awesome stop-motion skills, which have no doubt been built up from his many previous and impressive Lego-fied works, are on fire here, as usual, and I must say, nice choice in choosing a muscle-car legend, the Dodge Challenger, as the Pac-Man starring role; that is one lovely looking ride.
Please be sure to follow Alex’s Twitter and Facebook for more of his animations. They’re brilliant. And be sure to continue to follow us here on Walyou for more geeky hijinks of our own, say a cool Star Wars smartphone dock or a cute kitten meowing the opening theme to the Game of Thrones. It’s purr-fectly adorable. Teehee.
