A Meaningless Accomplishment That Is Somehow Still Impressive

Remember back in the halcyon days of yore, playing a little-known indie title on the Nintendo Entertainment System, “Super Mario Bros”? Remember having to play and replay each section again and again and again? Remember how long it took?

Some guy just did it in 4:57.69. The entire game, start to finish. Less than five minutes.

The video is awesome. Just watching the skill on display is mesmerizing. I saw it, and I still can’t believe just how good the guy is.

Give it a watch. I guarantee your jaw will hit the floor.
