SALT LAKE CITY, June 19 (UPI) -- A Utah woman shared video of herself in a post-surgery haze having an emotional moment spurred by acting out a Pac-Man scenario with her hands.
Jenn Packham, an American Fork student who recently underwent leg surgery at University of Utah Health Care in Salt Lake City, shared a video of herself in a post-surgery daze pretending one hand is Pac-Man and the other is one of the video game character's ghost enemies.
Packham, who posted the video to YouTube under the appropriate username Jenn Pacmman, decides in the video "the ghost is chasing Pac-Man."
"Oh man, that's a bad idea, I don't know where to go," Packham says, giving a window into the imaginary Pac-Man's thought process.
The dilemma leads to an emotional moment, and Packham breaks into tears until a woman -- believed by commenters to be a nurse -- takes the patient's Pac-Man hand and turns it away from the "ghost."
"Oh, dear, he's going to turn this way, that's all," the woman says.
The Pac-Man hand escapes the pursuing ghost via the z-axis and Packham, still somewhat distraught, mumbles the game hero's signature "whomp whomp whomp" sound effect as he gets away.
Packham was later able to laugh at herself, writing on YouTube: "My hands were the Pacman characters. Nothing else to explain haha."
