So, to celebrate your work and Caterpillar 95th year, The Cat® Trials are back!
THE CAT® TRIAL #9: PAC-MAN™
THE CAT® TRIAL #9: PAC-MAN™ BEHIND THE SCENES
PAC-MAN™ is iconic; one of the most famous video games ever developed. And Caterpillar is bringing it back center stage, 40 years after its release, as only the Cat® Trials can: at a scale of epic proportions! The Cat® Trial #9 puts Pac-Man and the ghosts back on the board. It brings the virtual world into a live action version of the popular video game.
The goal is simple: gobble up all the pellets before the ghosts can get you. The classic, electronic chase scene features some unique power pellets and bonuses that only Cat® Dealers can provide. So, you’re watching so much more than a reimagined version of the game; it highlights the technology, the versatility, the agility and the power you demand in the real world.

Just like the power pellets allow PAC-MAN™ to charge up and take on the ghosts, the ones you see in this game correspond to services that help you to power up, to meet tough challenges and get the most out of your Cat machines.

Doing the work
The work you do demands a steady hand and a high level of skill. Like the trials, whether your jobs are simple or complex, we know you work in the most extreme conditions on Earth and we thank you. The trials involve accomplishing tasks that were limited only by imagination - a fun way to represent the unique challenges you face every single day.
These videos highlight the power, versatility and precision our products bring to job sites and the critical nature of the services that customers have come to depend on.
The Cat Trials have documented some incredible feats… from a gigantic game of Jenga to an outrageous setup of dominoes. From a mountain of a man taking on bulldozer to twin pro golfers aiming for a hole-in-one on a moving green. We’ve been all over the world…. from the beaches of Rio de Janiero to a remote village on the side of a mountain in China. And don’t forget the China shop where we let a “bull” loose. Along the way, the Trials have rumbled their way into the Guinness Book of World Records… twice!
