5 Minutes in the Ms. Pac-Man Factory in 1982

Love this video it features several long shots of the entire factory and detailed close-ups of individual processes, like soldering and wire stripping in the Bally/Midway factory back in 1982. You can watch a full 16 minute version of this video over at Media Burn.

  1. Pretty awesome video, thanks for sharing it! I’m also pretty sure that at the 4:04 mark you can hear Sinistar announcing he’s alive. :)

    You forgot to mention the awesome ‘staches and 80’s hair.

    Interesting to see the process. When more things were made in USA.

    Gold-level retro video.

    But I couldn’t catch at what point they put the pellets in the machine.

    Maybe it’s in the longer vid?
