Beat Super Mario Bros. in 500 Points

An intrepid gamer has completed Super Mario Bros. with the lowest possible score. Playing the game for a low score means avoiding all coins, never stomping an enemy, never grabbing a power-up, and waiting by the flagpoles until the last possible second. (There's also a brutal jump on Level 8-1, where the player must avoid two coins over the span of a chasm.)

This video makes me insanely anxious. I just want to STOMP ALL THE THINGS. You'll love it.
