Just a few seconds into the video, the fans can see the iconic green color codes that are featured in “The Matrix”. Along with a voice-over in the background that says, “After all these years, I’ve discovered the source of ultimate power”. And just after it, the video features Sonic interacting with the protagonist of the movie “Dr. Ivo Robotnik” portrayed by the legendary actor “Jim Carrey”.

Where he tells Dr. Ivo, ” Face it, you will never catch me”. And then fans can see the video features “Red Quill” or “Blue Quill” followed by “The choice is yours”. Just similar to that of “Red Pill” and “Blue Pill” from “The Matrix” movie. To be honest, the entire video is pretty much fun to watch. And especially, the overall “The Matrix” touch is something that makes it even more amazing.
