30th Anniversary of Pac Man

It's the 30th anniversary of the arcade video game Pac Man, apparently.  I was never a big fan of video games myself as a kid; neither the stand-up ones in arcades that took quarters, nor the Atari-style home consoles.  But I definitely remember the "Pac Man Fever" that swept the country 30 years ago, which is recalled in this 2 minute piece from the NBC Nightly News last night.  If you don't remember all of this craziness, you can watch the 30 second intro to the Pac Man cartoon HERE, or a 30 second commercial for Pac Man cereal HERE, or one for Pac Man canned pasta HERE.  Or this one HERE for 7-Up pitched by Pac Man.
