On May 22, one of the most iconic video game characters will be celebrated as Pac-Man turns 35. As part of the celebrations, worldwide events will be taking place, with everything from birthday cakes to Pac-Man tournaments and other fun events tailored to the individual cities.

In Tokyo, the birthplace of Pac-Man, some of Japan's most famous actors Shingo Yanagisawa and Naomi Watanabe will attempt to set a Guinness world record, by creating the largest Pac-Man picture made out of people, with the help of all the attendees. In London, Pac-Man will be celebrating his birthday in a very special way, by being sent off into space. The trip will be documented with a GoPro camera, and the video will be shared on social media the same day.

These are just a couple of the many events happening around the world, and with the release of the upcoming Adam Sandler movie Pixels right around the corner, the timing couldn't be more perfect.
