A near stampede in NYC due to that video game everyone is playing

Call it overkill, but a mobile game has taken over lives of millions in just over a week. Pokemon Go apparently caused a near stampede yesterday in New York City when a rare character in the game was sighted in Central Park. The video above posted on Facebook by a tour company that offers city tours for PkGo players (yes, that’s a real business now) shot the video and even they found the humor in all these people trying to ‘catch ’em all’. Players in the famous park heard someone call out ‘VAPOREAN!’ and it started a panic.

This is just another example of how big PkGO has become in such a short time, as it’s currently most popular mobile game across multiple platforms.

So if your not playing and just annoyed by all this, at least it makes for good people watching right?
