Insane Super Mario World glitch video helps explain advanced exploits

You may think you're pretty good at gaming, you can get headshots, you can make it through a level without getting hit, you can make the hardest jumps with ease. But the fact of the matter is that you're not as good as this guy, and you never will be. He's so good he has to make his own impossible glitch exploit Super Mario levels to beat. In fact, he's so good that this video of him playing made Chuck Norris blink.

The video features a collection of almost every known Super Mario glitch and item exploit, most of which are news to 99% of all Super Mario players. The coolest part though is that the video actually features annotated commentary from the player, explaining each and every glitch, how they work, and what you have to do to make them happen. To be fair, the video is tool assisted, but it still takes a titanic level of skill and patience to pull something like this off.

Even with the commentary we doubt we've got the skill to hold two items at once while bouncing off of a saw blade and walking on lava with Yoshi. If nothing else, this video is a testament to the fact that despite being nearly 20 years old, Super Mario World still has a devoted group of players who've pushed the game to its absolute limits.

    I don't think most people actually know what it means when you call this video Tool Assisted, this is not necessarily a person with absurd skill, but someone with absurd time and patience. The fact that his notations talk about Mario's speed down to the millisecond basically means that he built these levels and then played through them frame by frame. No one can easily replicate most of these glitches through normal means because they require literally inhuman timing. Still very cool to watch though.

    That's the most insanity I've seen packed into one video.

    And this is where I come and say "guy with too much time on his hands". He seriously needs a new hobby. Learn how to play the piano.

    yep, it's insane

    It says in the video that it's TAS, or Tool-Assisted Speedrun. It's still impressive though, I don't think TAS's deserve the often negative stigma they have.

    While it is awesome he built the levels right? So he had he knew where shit was and had played the levels over and over again. Anyone can be that good with months of practice. I would be more impressed if it was his first time and someone else mad those levels.

    OMG... Does anyone officially know if this guy used tools?
  • EDfromRED - August 20, 2010 7:06 a.m.

    This video is Astounding! The skill and prowess on display here is incredible. If a real life "Enders Game" situation ever existed, I'd sleep soundly if this dude --or dudette, was repelling alien invaders via gameing skills.

    That was like watching Jesus play games

    My jaw was almost on the floor while I watched that!
