Uber Unveiled Its New Logo And People Think It Looks Like Pac-Man

Or a doughnut. Or something else.

It didn't take long for an inevitable Twitterstorm to ensue.

Won't be updating @Uber based on it's ridiculous new logo 😷


But most people compared it to '80s video game gobbler Pac-Man.

Not that I care much about the new @Uber logo, but it does look a bit like PacMan

One person thought it could be a villainous cousin of the arcade icon.

Perhaps his mission is to eat up drivers from rival taxi firms, as this chap suggests.

It's like #pacman is uber πŸ˜‚ EATING UP ALL THEM CABBIES πŸš• #londoncab vs #uber #too #political #for #a #wednesday

Others thought that poor Pac-Man might have eaten something unsavoury.

Or needed a filling or two in his freakishly large mouth.

The new @Uber logo looks like pacman had a dental xray and something has gone very wrong.

Uber's founder and chief executive Travis Kalanick said: "The old Uber was black and white, somewhat distant, and cold.

"This belied what Uber actually is – a transportation network, woven into the fabric of cities and how they move. To bring out this human side –the atoms – we've added colour and patterns."

So there we are.
