Incredible Super Mario Bros. speed run record

Jump. Jump. Run. Jump. Hit the block. Fall down the hole. No matter how good we thought we were at Super Mario Bros., our attempts at a 'speed run' always fell woefully short of record-breaking.

Our efforts have been made to look even more spectacularly futile thanks to a Mario speedrunner by the name of Blubbler. His latest world record sees him complete the entire game in a staggering four minutes and 57.69 seconds. We can't even get dressed that quickly.

Beating the previous record of 4:58.09, Blubbler executes some spectacular skills in his run - from jumping on pipes even when a Piranha Plant is threateningly close, to avoiding any end of level fireworks (they only appeared if you finished a level with a time ending in 1, 3 or 6).

Watch the record being set below and prepare to hail a new champion.
