Super Mario Bros. has been completed in just under five minutes by speedrunner ‘Blubbler.’ They’ve just beaten their own previous world record by using a newly-discovered glitch. Watch the whole run here.

Blubber’s previous record was 4:58:09, but this new run came in at 4:57.69. The glitch in question occurs in World 8-2, and sees Mario jumping on a Bullet Bill just as he reaches the end flag. It prevents him from walking across the screen to reach Bowser’s castle, shaving precious time off the run.
