Inspired by the 8-bit era of gaming, artist and animator Mike Scott created this astounding pixel music video for South African band Goldfish's song "We Come Together", riddled with references to classic video games. How many can you spot?

Scott tells me that he created this labor of love "with Kotaku's appreciation of 8-bit heritage in mind", so this one is apparently for all of you lovely readers out there.

According to the making of video, the band wanted a video that featured them battling the forces of smooth jazz, with the jazz police attempting to thwart their efforts. Scott took idea and morphed it into smooth jazz cats versus electro-fishes, a theme I believe we can all relate to on some level.

Or not.

What we can relate to, however, is the copious amount of gaming love the video displays. From Bomberman to Pac-Man and all the mans between, they come together for Goldfish's "We Come Together."
