Popeye is an arcade video game developed by Nintendo, designed by Shigeru Miyamoto. In it, Popeye must dodge Bluto and his infinite stack of beer bottles, and other threats that come in his way such as skulls and vultures - while collecting a number of hearts, music notes or letters spelling "HELP" from Olive Oyl.

In this tool-assisted speedrun, MESHUGGAH plays through one loop (three stages), while aiming to get as high a score as possible.
