The answer: A lot.
According to Rescuetime.com, 4.82 million hours of time were wasted on PacMan. That translates into:
- 300,000 days
- 6,690 months [30d = 1m]
- 550. years
- 5.50 centuries
That’s almost half a millenium of time spent by the entire world population playing Google Pacman.
Additionally, when everyone found out that the Google Pacman logo was playable, $120 million dollars was lost in the global economy by the end of Sunday. On opening day, Google amassed 505 million unique visitors, and the game consumed around 5 million hours of work time.
This is the first time Google has done an interactive logo, but they’ve managed to place a significant dent in world productivity.
