In 'The Bug', two video game characters, Ms. Pac-Man and Arkanoid's paddle Pac-Girl and Arknoid's paddle, cross paths under circumstances they can't identify and aren't really clear until the video's surprise ending. Before they can get there, though, they'll need to battle ghosts, crawling cubes, and a giant control pad.

Yongsub Song created this outstanding 3D animation for his MFA Computer Art thesis at Manhattan's School of Visual Arts. With the short film, he hope to ask, "If video game characters have their own will, what are they? What are you going to define them?" Another question this video ponders: How badass would an Arkanoid paddle look with machine guns and ball launchers?
