How fast can you die in... New Super Mario Bros U?

What doesn't kill you only makes the video longer

The first goomba. Right? Surely the rapid appearance of the first goomba will mean Mario is about to top our HFCYDI leaderboard. Ah, but you're forgetting the rules. The rules of How Fast Can You Die In are (and I quote): "Lo the timer will ftart from the inftant the button if verily preffed to commence the game, not from the moment one affumef control of thyne avatar" (yes, they're quite old now).

So that means unskippable cutscenes will eat into any attempt. But are these long enough to deny the plucky plumber from planting New Super Mario Bros U at the top of the table? Let's find out...

Enjoyed that? Then check out the rest of our HFCYDI videos and check back in a fortnight for the next one. It'll be a far cry from Mario, that's for sure...
