UPDATE 2: Pacman has broken 100,000 views on Vimeo!!!
UPDATE: New links and Vimeo numbers coming in
As of writing this post, Pacman on Vimeo has about
39,000 44,300 52,400, 56,000 65,000 77,800 101,000 views. Yesterday was by far the busiest day ever for ThereforeYou. We’re seeing our Pacman: The Movie trailer posted and reposted all over the place. And right now, Pacman has a really high rating on Funny or Die!
So we wanted to share what people have been saying about Pacman and give a big ‘Thanks’ to everyone who watched, embedded, shared, and posted our video yesterday.
It all started with a post at Geekologie, so a big thanks to them for giving us our break. Geekologie has long been one of our favorite sites, and this gives them at least +150 Awesome and +5 Charisma. Here’s what they had to say about Pacman:
And I, for one, am not ashamed to admit I screamed like a little girl warrior battling a battalion of orcs single-handedly. Literally, the other was on my crotch THE WHOLE TIME [...]
I thought it was definitely worth a watch.
Ever since then, other sites have been picking up the video from Geekologie, our Vimeo page, and even here at ThereforeYou. Keep reading to see what they’ve been saying about our newest video.
This one’s worth a look, with Pac presented as an unethical pharmaceutical executive subjected to ironic torture reminiscent of “Saw.”
The concept is clever and totally takes Pac-Man to a new level of awesome. Though, the crew only intended to satire Hollywood’s love for taking video games with barely any plot and turning them into bad feature films they’ve accidentally made one of the greatest fan films ever. (that is arguable but still, it’s pretty fucking good).
Finally, here’s a Pac-Man movie trailer that looks like it’d make a great movie, in a campy, get-hammered-beforehand kind of way. It could also leave some emotional scars.
From B&B Entertainment (run partly by Therefore’s own Bill Bodkin):
It’s an awesome video and I recommend heading over there and checking this video out…
Currently making the rounds on the Internet: A wonderful fake trailer for Pac-Man: The Movie, whipped up by Therefore Productions.
Thedailywh.at says “This is pretty brilliant [...]”
YouBentMyWookie says “Therefore Productions has created a rather brilliant “Pacman: The Movie” adaptation trailer [...]”
MovieLine’s article is titled “Pac-Man Trailer Should Ignite A Fever For Arcade Adaptations”.
We also have a link on The Awesomer.
We’re featured on USATODAY’s Popcandy blog.
We’re on The Daily Beast’s Video page.
And that’s not all the posts we’ve found so far. We’re looking forward to seeing where else Pacman: The Movie winds up, and what people have to say about it. Ultimately, we want our videos to reach people and make them laugh. In that regard, it looks like yesterday was a pretty good day.
We can’t thank everyone enough, but we also want to keep it going! Share the link to the video from here at ThereforeYou (http://www.thereforeyou.com/content/pacman-the-movie) and on Vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/10603337). We want to reach as many people as we can, because Therefore Productions has even more in store for 2010. So share Pacman on Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, and any other site where people would enjoy a funny, well-crafted piece of comedy.
