We've Got A Lot Of Catching Up To Do

May 1st, 2007

Well this just makes my ability to play Mario Kart 64 upside-down seem small and insignificant in comparison. This guy can beat the first level of Super Mario Bros. without looking at the screen! He even gets a mushroom! Granted, he takes the weak man’s shortcut (though he gets bonus points for getting all the coins), but I don’t think I’d be able to pull off something like this. Click on to the TV In Japan blog to take a look-see, and be shamed once again by our so-called friends across the Pacific. Of course you know, Japan, this means war.

Also, watch more TV In Japan in general. I’m consistently entertained by the zaniness.

EDIT: YouTube took the video down, but I found an American kid doing much the same thing. He even gets partway into World 1-2!

Next task: Beat The Lost Levels blindfolded.
