Super Mario Bros 3 completed fast ― without using the magic whistles.

Although this movie doesn't use the magic whistles, it does skip stages, and actually skips them quite a lot, with the aid of various items such as the hammers.

This is an improvement of about 44.5 seconds over the previous movie.
