This run beats the World Record but it might not seem like that. This is because I have to wait a bit during the startup screen.


  • Keen pogoes higher if you press Control while midair
  • In the first level I have to wait for that armadillo thing to move down or else the evil guy will kill me.
  • Pogoing over the cave, whee! Did you know that this is the only way to beat this level?
  • One hit kills you. If you didn't know.
  • Can you spot a penis in the movie?
  • I think this is a bit improvable, yadda yadda, probably on McMire?
