A Good Pac-Man Is Hard To Find: Spadina Bust

We should have known! The culprits responsible for the Pac-Man recreation on a streetcar shelter outside Kensington Market have stepped forward, and they’re neither advertisers nor immoralists: they’re Teeth (responsible for this charming bear-woman) and our very own Posterchild (who is something of a fan of video games).
The two collaborated to put up three nearly identical installations along Spadina: one at Spadina and Harbord (pictured above, at top); one at Spadina and Queen (above, bottom); and the one we spotted on Sunday, at Spadina south of Nassau (above, middle). The three ghosts, three cherries, and three Pac-Men were made out of scrap adhesive vinyl, took a grand total of five hours to build and install, and, says Posterchild, were totally Teeth’s idea. Says Posterchild: “When Teeth told me about it, I said ‘That’s brilliant! Let’s do it!'” And they did, and it was good.
