The Most Difficult Super Mario Brothers Level Ever

As a follow-up to yesterday's post on the greatest video game ever, I thought I'd put this link to a great YouTube video up. The title of the post says it all. Someone with way too much time on their hands designed what has become known as the most difficult Super Mario Brothers Level ever. Someone else with too much time on his hands sat down to play it.

And people like us, with apparently too much time on their hands as well, have sat down to watch the guy play the board.

Warning: The guy playing the game narrates his misadventures and tends to curse. A lot. Understandably, if you ask me, as his frustration mounts with each successive death. My recommendation is to watch a couple of minutes of the video. You don't need to see the whole thing to get the gist, and you won't get tired of hearing some guy overuse the f word. And don't watch it at work. Hope you enjoy.

That's hilarious. I wonder what it says about me that I watched the entire clip? Not to mention my trigger finger was going like mad the whole time.

It is hysterical. Don't know if you saw them, but there are usually links to the other parts of the video as he progresses through the levels. It's pretty much more of the same--insanity, profanity, etc.

I'd love to try that board. There's gotta be somewhere online where one can find it to play.

I couldn't stop watching.

Freakin' great.

the guy does get in quite a few great one-liners.

I loved his intro: (paraphrasing) "Okay, Mario, you're going to get into the castle, you're going to rescue the princes, and you're going to get laid tonight."

It sounds like the guy is channeling an Adam Sandler character.

I thought the same thing. Except goats don't have the thumbs or fingers needed to play video games.

Brian O'Rourke said...

Good call there. I didn't hear that before, but I think you're onto something there.

We have to find this thing online and try to play it sometime.
