Speedrunner Crescendo recently shared a video in which he broke a Super Mario Bros record, while blindfolded. Crescendo managed to speedrun the NES classic in just under 12 minutes, with an eye mask on - he didn’t look at the screen a single time. 

Crescendo claimed that his musical training played a role in helping him achieve this feat. This becomes evident during the video - Crescendo carefully managed how far Mario runs by counting on the beat with near-perfect timing. 

Crescendo doesn’t just run the game blindfolded, however. In other videos on his channel, he manages to beat Super Mario Bros in as little as 5:51 seconds. Niftski, a Twitch streamer, holds the current world record for speedrunning Super Mario Bros, at 4 minutes and 54 seconds, so Crescendo’s a bit behind in that respect. 

Compared to his standard speedruns, the blindfolded attempt is a bit less smooth and there’s more backtracking. However, this is still a remarkable achievement, considering that it’s only six minutes longer than the current world record.
