Thanks to the Mario Kart Wii community for having an incredible scene. Absolutely could not have done it without them. The following people should be particularly credited for helping greatly with research: Blaze: us-first.info/more/QNKPAUvVZvvtpEJBrMsqXg Braixen: www.twitch.tv/bbraixen cf: us-first.info Ejay: us-first.info Jellopuff: us-first.info/more/UjE8oTqClAchc9Ojkkx4LQ Malleo: us-first.info Additionally, I had a small group of people help me with my first Mario Kart Wii video a couple years ago. The following two people helped me immensely: MrBean35000vr: www.twitch.tv/mrbean35000vr SwordofSeals: www.twitch.tv/swordofseals I’ve loved covering the community in the two videos I’ve made so far, and hope to make more down the road as these players break the game even more!

I genuinely resented these types of shortcuts at all in MKW, as they totally destroyed Online Play. The only way to keep up was to grab Funky and his bike, and abuse the game, or just not bother.

No hate, but I don't understand what relevance TAS-only shortcuts have with speedruns. In practice, in my mind, it's the same as having super speed cheats or turning wall hitboxes off.
callen the moron
That ending though

Given how many views this is getting, many of you probably haven't subscribed to summoning salt yet. DO IT. It's one of the few channels to never disappoint me and deserves to get that play button already. DO IT NOW.

I still remember first seeing Arthur pull off the jump, and just going I DID IT I DID IT and i genuinely got emotional. This is 5 years of constant effort from hundreds of people, finally culminating into a single moment. Its difficult not to almost shed a tear hearing their excitement.

These videos always have a certain amount of reverence for beloved speedrunning tricks, I absolutely love it. It's like they're reciting poetry. "The Rainbow Road ultra, the holy grail of mario kart wii speedrunning." I know it's just video games but it gives me chills
