I was having a bit of a nostalgia trip on youtube when I came across this. Gave me a laugh.

Excellent. Not seen Minder for years and that's just one little example of why it was so good.

HAHAHAHAHA!!! I absolutely LOVE that!! I actually have one of those cabs (The Invaders by Zaccaria) - took it over to the Retro Fusion event last month - wish I'd known about this clip at the time, I'd have dressed up like Arfur D. !!!! ;) :D

He was hustled by the machine cos he put money in to play even though at the end of his first game it said PUSH 1 or 2 player button.

I'm working from home this afternoon. I'm quite tempted to play The Invaders cab wearing an Arthur Daley hat and nothing else. Whaddya reckon? Good idea?

Classic clip! Shows you how popular Space Invaders was then to have it in a pub. Early Only Fools & Horses has a Space Invaders Machine in the pub as well!
