I’m not sure how I feel about this, but I guess that was the idea of the “Snackwards Cam” in the first place.
We’re close to entering into a very busy part of the sports calendar, where NBA, NFL, NHL, college football, and college basketball games are all going on at the same time.
Hockey got started at the beginning of October, and if you’ve never given the sport on ice a try, you really should. At least go to a game in person, because it very well could be one of the best live sporting events you ever go to.
Why you might be asking? Well, for starters, the NHL lets their players fight each other, so that’s a plus if you are into that. The in-game entertainment is also one of the highlights of hockey games, considering there’s a good amount of time that the arenas have to fill in between periods.
One of the ways that the Dallas Stars NHL team decided to fill the time is with a very unique and possibly disturbing video activity up on the jumbotron. Everyone knows classics like the “Kiss Cam,” or the “Simba Cam,” but I guarantee you’ve never seen the horror of the “Snackwards Cam.”
The “Snackwards Cam” takes videos of people in the crowd eating their food, then plays it backwards, creating a strange and arguably unnecessary fan experience. It seems to me like there was a good reason why sports arenas had never done this before.
