Space Invaders Get Animated

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  November 6, 2008

Check out this wacky Space Invaders animated video that Taito recenly put together for their Game Station arcades in Japan.

The Anime-style video tells the story of a little girl and her encounter with those pesky Invaders. My favorite part has got to be the Vocoder-processed lyrics“We are Space Invaders. Here we come to be your friend. Space. There’s no need to be afraid…”

And now, sit back, relax, and enjoy – Space Invaders: The Music Video…

I thought for sure they came to Earth to destroy civilization in a blaze of laser fire. But apparently, Space Invaders really here to tell us to pick up our trash. Really?

For some reason, the end reminds me of the scene where Ralphie decodes the secret B-E-S-U-R-E-T-O-D-R-I-N-K-Y-O-U-R-O-V-A-L-T-I-N-E message in A Christmas Story.
