It's hard to believe, but even to this day, speedrunners are still competing over the crown for the fastest Super Mario Bros. run yet. The record has been going down, millisecond by millisecond, for years now, and a recent twitch streamer just set it a bit lower.
The record was previously set at 4:57.194 by Kosmicd12 on 3rd October, but it just took two days for Darbian to retake the crown with a cool time of 4:56.878. Of particular note is that this is the first time that a human has managed to get the time below 4:57; Darbian did a run that was believed to be only achievable by usage of a bot. Here it is, though do be warned of some language in the live comments:
What do you think? When do you think we'll finally hit the lowest possible run? What's your fastest time? Drop us a comment in the section below.
