Author's comments and explanations:
I've never tried TASing a puzzle game before.

There's really not much to say. It's a 24 second movie. Better strategy I guess.

The order of the columns is predetermined, and unmanipulatable.

This is the exact same category as Axelito's run (9 rows, Novice) and improves it by 216 frames.

Input can be ended earlier, and this will mean that the final block falls slower, however, the input in this movie will lead to the fastest ending by speeding up the descent of the final block.

EDIT: I have a confession to make. The initial intent of this movie was to see to it that no genesis columns run would ever make it to the site. Now that Axelito's run has been rejected, I can safely cancel this run.

I'm an asshole I know.
