Wendy's Recruits Pac-Man For Delicious Ad Campaign
Now you can score some video game swag while munching tasty chicken sandwiches.
Apparently, Pac-Man knows when it's real.
Namco Bandai has joined forces with fast food juggernaut Wendy's to put five different Pac-Man toys inside the restaurant's Kids' Meals, now through April 10, 2011. The goal is to inspire consumers to "Pause. Play Together...and spend some quality time with the whole family."
Here's the full list of toys:
PAC-MAN Bowling: Set 'em up and knock 'em down! Wind-up PAC-MAN and aim for the paper ghost and fruit targets. Can you knock them all down?
PAC-MAN Dash: Pull PAC-MAN back, and set him free. Which way will he go? You'll just have to see! Wind-up PAC-MAN and try to avoid the colored Ghosts or knock over the "turn-to-blue" Ghosts to win!
PAC-MAN Hide & Seek: PAC-MAN is always on the move! Take turns hiding PAC-MAN under one of the Ghosts and shuffling the Ghosts around to confuse other players. Where's PAC-MAN? The player that guesses right gets their turn to hide PAC-MAN!
PAC-MAN Maze: It's a race to collect the fruit as you roll the die and move around the game board. But Ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde will try to keep you from moving around the board and collecting your fruit. The game includes all the pieces and instructions for 1-4 player games.
PAC-MAN Tag: Get ready to chase or be chased with the PAC-MAN Tag Game! Toy includes 1 PAC-MAN and 3 Ghost tags. Players can clip on a tag to play 3 active, exciting games that will get everybody up and moving around!
In addition to the toy, hungry patrons will also find a coupon that grants them a discount on Pac-Man for PC; what, no App Store? Makes no sense.
We've needed a good excuse to visit Wendy's, and this Pac-Man deal may push us over the edge. It's burger time...literally.
