Author's comments and explanations:
Remember the kill screen that happens in Level 29? But in the PAL version, it happens in Level 19. Making the PAL version harder.

The pieces also move left and right faster in the PAL version by holding the D-pad left and right. But in TASing, we tap left and right.

I do Level 19 Height 5 which is next to impossible in the NTSC version, but impossible on the PAL version.

But I did it. I made the impossible happen. I completed Level 19 Height 5 on the PAL version. You should congratulate me of completing such feat.

Masterjun: Judging.

Masterjun: Replaced the movie file with the one that doesn't have a blank frame at the end.

Masterjun: This movie does not complete Mode B of the game while also clearing all the blocks on the field, meaning it can't obsolete the current Mode B run. So if anything it would make a new branch, however it doesn't provide anything new, in fact, completing the mode while clearing all the blocks is more impressive. This movie also runs on the PAL version of the game which is highly discouraged. Despite all this, this run is also not really optimized to Tetris movie standards (for example it doesn't use the faster slow-down glitch instead of pausing to manipulate blocks).
