Sega-esque logo spotted in music video

Yes, this is positively ancient news (in internet terms) to some people, but watching the amazing video of Justice's "DVNO", I noticed a logo that looked remarkably familiar.

The 2008 video is based on the Scanimate logos utilised by TV channels and production studios in the 1970s and 1980s. Some are faithful reproductions, whilst others reference to other companies.

The Sega-esque logo pops up with the lyric "make the girls sweat", with "sweat" being in the classic Sega logo font. Beads of liquid drip down the metallic letters with glowy purple shapes in the background.

I based my Christmas SEGAtastic logo on the Scanimate and airbrush style:

The video as a whole is absolutely brilliant - I love anything shiny, so seeing logos based on analogue video technology was very pleasing. Digital technology simply cannot recreate light with as much realism and flare as the old Scanimate machines, but this video comes close.
