Arcade Attack

Pinball warriors vs. Space Invaders. From 1982, this played on HBO's Short Takes between films. It is the ending segment of a 25 min British doc on video games by Mike Wallington. The doc revolves around two game champs - Geoff Harvey (pinball) and Stephen Highfield (Space Invaders). They argue and at the end it comes to life in animation. Great synthy arcade music.

Here is a longer version with more of the documentary bits:
