Watch this new Super Mario Bros. speed run record and be amazed

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.
