High-speed Mario: this might not be funny to you

…but it was to me. And I still don’t know why.

I found this video on Japan’s Nico Nico Douga video site a few days back and saved it. I’m not sure why. And I’ve watched it a few times and laughed hard, for reasons unknown to me. It’s just some guy laying down commentary on a session of world 1-1 of Super Mario Bros played on high-speed. It shouldn’t be that funny, right? Maybe it won’t be to you. If not, I’m sorry.

Have you done this before? Played the game sped up? It’s insanely hard. The last time I did this, I wasn’t as calm as this guy.

I love when he misses his fire flower power-up.
