SMH: Watch People Rush Central Park In Search of Rare Pokémon

SMH: Watch People Rush Central Park In Search of Rare Pokémon

One man even jumps out of his running car because of the game.

Published July 16th

PokémonGO, the interactive mobile game, continues to take over, and has some people simply acting crazy as a result of the trend.

The game, which requires people to physically walk around in order to capture different pokémon, is interfering with general public safety and common sense, with people running into oncoming traffic in order to advance in the game, and things of that silly (and at times dangerous) nature.

A recent video clip, captured in Central Park in New York City, shows a perfect example at the madness the game is inspiring.

The clip shows someone getting out of their car (who was seated in the driver’s seat, by the way), running to join countless others in order to go capture a rare pokémon.

Simply can’t make this stuff up.

Take a look at an example of the craze PokémonGO is inspiring in the video below.
