PAC-MAN is in the Tournament of Roses Parade

I was the only one left around the office to tell you this important news. Why? Well, first of all, it’s a really slow news day. The other reason is actually PAC-MAN related: Everyone’s off playing PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX!

Namco Bandai says that ol’ PAC will the the first videogame character to get his own float in the 122 years of the Annual Tournament of Roses Parade, set to kick off in Pasadena, California on January 1, 2011. He’s showing up to celebrate 30 years of ghost chompin’ and promote his new Wii game, PAC-MAN Party.  

PAC’s float will stand at 55 feet tall and include the ghost characters from the franchise Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde. He’ll also be holding a birthday cake. <3 you, PAC-MAN.
