Pac-Man Street Art Takes Over Downtown Intersection

Pac-Man has eaten up a Downtown intersection in what’s either a new street art piece or some sort of guerilla marketing.
Pac-Man appears on the street at the intersection of 7th and Imperial Streets, eating pellets (or “pac-dots,” if you’re super nerdy) and running away from a pink ghost. Just in case you were wondering, that pink ghost has a name, and it’s “Pinky.”
The pellets end on a telephone pole at a sign that reads “GAME OVER.” We’re still not sure what it’s all about, but LA Times points out that there’s a new trailer out for the ’80s video game movie Pixels in which aliens attack the Earth in the form of vintage arcade game characters—so either way, free marketing.
