Nom, nom, nom. We all know that phrase quite well, and with the advent of social media we've been accustomed to using it across platforms in reference to eating, crunching, and - ultimately, munching on something. However, its origins truly come from an adorable yellow character known to the world as PAC-MAN. On May 22nd, 1980, this simple yet lovable video game phenomenon was born in the land of the rising sun, Japan. On May 22nd, 2015 - 35 years after the seasoned and international icon became a household name - Chicago, and the world, celebrated PAC-MAN's birthday.
"PAC-MAN is is for everyone, the world has embraced his essence and accepted him as one of their very own. We don't know what the future will bring for our friend (PAC-MAN), but it is certain that we would like future generations to continue enjoying (the game)."
