Insert Coin:Pac Man 30th Anniversary Pacman Game Day Free Online

Insert Coin:Pac Man 30th Anniversary Pacman Game Day Free Online – The game of Pac Man is celebrating their 30th anniversary today. To commemorate the day, Google has placed a playable Pac Man game as their logo on their homepage that has spread virally throughout the Internet today through Facebook and Twitter status updates. Google is known for changing their logo on anniversaries and holidays to commemorate the events.

The logo has been called the Google Doodle usually will display an image that is related to the day in history, and when the user hovers over the image, they will see an explanation of why they are not seeing the Google logo for the day. Today, when you hover over the Pac Man game that they have placed on their page, you will see the words “PAC-MAN’s 30th BIRTHDAY!” The change in their logo happened on Friday, and will likely remain on the homepage throughout the day.

Usually, the logo is not interactive when it is changed. That is different today, as users who visit the Google homepage can actually play the Pac Man game, which also features the word “Google” in the game’s walls. Along with the game, the site is also offering an addition “Insert Coin” button.
All you have to do is click on the logo to have Pac Man appear on the screen. You then can use your arrow keys to control him and move him around the screen. Both Google Trends and Twitter Trending Topics have been ablaze with Pac Man related keywords throughout the day. It would be reasonable to expect that a vast majority of the day’s work is not getting done today in offices around the world due to the game being added to the Google homepage.

    Pacman got me fired yesterday at work! Can U belive that??Pacman??? See, I was caught about 3 weeks ago playing Donkey-Kong online (OOPS), then about a week ago I got caught playing with MYSELF, but yesterday I put my tool down and seen Google had Pacman, decided to give it a whirl and SHAAAA-ZAMMM !! The Boss Lady lit into me like a TORNADO…. She told me, If I couldn’t find something better to PLAY with –I WAS FIRED!!!! So, I yanked my JUNK out ( All 4 inches) and asked her how would she like to play a little ” Hand-Ball” HAHAHAHAHAAHAHA Needless to say, she don’t play away games–I was fired!!!! I guarantee ya one thing, I bet after she saw how small my junk was, she might rehire me for reasons of : ” PITY” ???? Im so bored, why did I write this?
