Definitely Intellivision.  You can see the title screen at the end.

Atari should have made a commercial showing M-Network Astroblast vs. Intellivision Astrosmash.  The Atari version is faster, and can use paddles.  It may not look as good, but it's a lot more fun.  You think Mattel would have been ok with this?  It's kind of a back-handed compliment. 

 

I can almost picture it.  You show an old geezer George Plimpton lookalike enjoying the slow Intv version, then kids having a blast with the Atari version.
