Music video

Different World's video begins with a man in white (who resembles lead singer Bruce Dickinson) looking over dozens of humanoid creatures putting an unknown purple substance into test tubes. The character takes a tube and puts it into a briefcase and makes a run for it, he is caught on camera and many robot spiders are sent after him. He is then seen running along a walkway above a futurisic city, after coming to the end of it, he makes a leap of faith and jumps onto another walkway, and when he comes to the end of that one, he jumps into a vent tube he comes out the other end with no safe landing and hanging on by one hand, he lets go, tumbling for seemingly hundreds (maybe even thousands) of stories and rather luckily, landing on a blimp, however, once he regains his bearings, the character is grabbed by one of a couple of flying snake like robots with grabber claws on the end, the one holding him crashes into the ground and the character rolls away unhurt. He runs into a building with a neon sign of Eddie (the mascot)above the door, there, he meets a tall alien woman who starts twirling an odd orb around, the character looks into it shocked, we (the viewers) see what is in this orb, it shows hundreds of small helicoptors drop small egg like objects ito an ocean, which soon is drained of the water by the objects and turns into a meadow of grass and flowers, a young boy who looks like the mysterious character appears with the very same briefcase, holding the very same tube, which the boy picks out and throws at the screen, seemingly causing the orb the alien woman prodused to explode, after that Eddie (the mascot) appears as a giant, and begins to smash things around him. It's safe to assume that Eddie was in fact the mystery character as he is wearing the same white trousers. The video ends with Eddie holding the world, then tossing it at the screen, the world then explodes in a big blue ball of fire.
