How to Ruin a Compelling Internet Short

There’s no way to watch this video of a gritty, live-action video game short without ruining the surprise. Technically, the people who made the video kind of ruined the “twist” by titling it: “PAC-MAN live action reboot”.

That’s a shame, because for the first couple of minutes, the video is un-nervering.You don’t really know what’s going on until the white dots show up and then it’s a monster movie and Pac-man shows up and he’s covered in fur and, well, you get the idea. The concept of turning Pac-man into a monster movie, where Pac-man is the monster is kind of brilliant.
