Iron Maiden's music video for their new single, "Speed Of Light," has mascot Eddie channeling Kevin Flynn as he travels through video game history. Sucked into an alternate computer dimension Tron-style, Eddie encounters references to Donkey Kong, Blade Runner, and more. Take a look:

Eddie also engages in a Mortal Kombat-inspired fight and even has his own relatively tame fatality. "Speed Of Light" is the first single off the upcoming album The Book Of Souls, Iron Maiden's first album since 2010.
