In keeping with my ongoing series of puppet horror posts, I present this seemingly innocuous YouTube clip of a man reviewing the official Pac-Man Puppet. Sure, it’s cute (sorta), but watch closely: for much of the duration of the clip, whenever the reviewer has the puppet on his hand, the mouth is constantly moving, as if compelled by an alien force, even if the man is not consciously speaking through Pac-Man at all. Clearly he is suffering from an acute, indeed perhaps fatal, case of Pac-Man Fever (cf. Drs. Buckner & Garcia, 1981). There is no known cure.

Wokka wokka wokka.
