Mike / January 12th, 2011
January 12, 2011 at 2:07 am
Well, that’s new! Pretty awesome, I must say!
January 12, 2011 at 2:08 am
That was fucking awesome. I’ve wanted to see that for ages. Thank you Mike.
That is genius! Nice work Mike!
January 12, 2011 at 2:14 am
Wow, I didn’t think that this was even possible! Thanks for the wonderful tip and awesome video, Mike!
January 12, 2011 at 2:16 am
well its about mother fucking time that motherfucker mike started making some mother fucking video’s of his mother fucking own on this mother fucking site. Can’t wait to see some more…… mother fucker.
January 12, 2011 at 2:18 am
I’ve done this before, except on super Mario all stars. What mike has probably only just learned is touching the flag pole from the back gives you a 1-Up.
btw, you should come to magfest with james!
January 12, 2011 at 2:21 am
I love it when Motherfucker Mike is in videos. Dude cracks me up. Great work guys!
January 12, 2011 at 2:24 am
That is Motherfucking Genius!!!
Cool! I never knew there was a way to get over the flagpole without editing the level. Are there going to be more videos like this?
Awesome trick, thanks for sharing!
Are you wearing theater makeup, though? You look extra white.
Mario 1, 2 and three behind you.
January 12, 2011 at 2:28 am
This is beyond awesome, how did you even know about the turtle trick in general though? Like how did you first get the idea to even do that?
January 12, 2011 at 2:29 am
Or you could just the space jump code on the Game Genie.
January 12, 2011 at 2:30 am
Ah, ok. That was a slight bit misleading. Should have been titled “Jumping Over The Flagpole In Stage One Of Super Mario Bros.”
Here is one glitch a lot people might not know. In Stage 1-2, when you get to the area for warp zone, go there and jump in the third pipe (level 4) before the game comes up with the Warp Zone name and stages logo. Once you do that you will automatically be transported to level -1 where it is an endless loop of you swimming. Every time you get to the end and go through the pipe in level -1 you will just keep replaying level -1 over and over again.
Thanks for sharing, Motherfucker Mike. I hope to see more of these kinds of things from you. I hope you have a great 2011!
July 21, 2014 at 9:11 pm
Not misleading in the slightest….. You have the comment that is irrelevant. The minus world glitch has no flagpoles, you use warp pipes, and it’s on the 2nd stage of world 1. This one is on STAGE 1, WORLD 1. There isn’t anything misleading about it. You are dumb….
January 12, 2011 at 2:31 am
Awesome! Finally a video of Super Motherfucker Mike. I’m wondering if you solved that yourself because had it been me, no fucking way I would have figured this shit out.
January 12, 2011 at 2:34 am
wow!! great!!! i am going to try it!!!, i love MIke =)
January 12, 2011 at 2:44 am
Awesome! I’d like to see more videos with Mike!
January 12, 2011 at 2:47 am
I’m all for Mike doing his own little videos. The guy’s super witty and deserves to be the star of his own videos. I hope this wasn’t just a one time thing.
January 12, 2011 at 3:03 am
Nice Mike, you should make more vids for this site!
January 12, 2011 at 3:15 am
I hope this is the start of more videos featuring Mofo Mike, and not just his drawings.
that was pretty awesome, Mike
hope to see more of your videos
January 12, 2011 at 3:21 am
How in the world did you even figure that glitch out?
January 12, 2011 at 3:24 am
Sweet ass vid Mike. Now could you make one showing us how to knock out Mike Tyson?
January 12, 2011 at 3:28 am
Mike should have his own show. I’d love to see that becoming a reality. Maybe a show consisting of bizarre things in movies and games that people don’t necessarily pay attention to but are there. I always loved spotting those kind of things when I was a kid, things that were not intended to be in the final product. I don’t know, Mike is probably a busy guy. 🙁
January 12, 2011 at 3:35 am
I recall seeing this on Youtube or something a while back, it’s really a neat trick!
I agree with Daniel, Mike should really do more videos like these.
January 12, 2011 at 3:47 am
Nice going Mike, that was so cool ^_^
January 12, 2011 at 3:58 am
Mike = Awesomeness
Following a damn turtle. lol.
Now that was hilarious. Mike, you motherfucker you, start doing more of this, if you would please.
January 12, 2011 at 4:00 am
yes mike! more!
January 12, 2011 at 4:02 am
Hell yeah, that’s good stuff. It kind of helps pad out this retro x-entertainment vibe this site has. Mike, have you got any other ideas for quick “the more you know” shorts?
January 12, 2011 at 4:09 am
Hah, cool. Didn’t know that was even possible outside 3-3
January 12, 2011 at 4:16 am
this is the kind of useless shit we want to know more about!
and: yeah, i´d also love a MF-Mike-spinoff.
January 12, 2011 at 4:26 am
I would also like to throw my vote in for a MF-Mike showcase which, like Daniel above me stated would have random/bizarre references and interesting things from movies/games that the general masses have overlooked.
Seems to me like you boys @ Cinemassacre have a keen eye for that sort of stuff.
Thanks for the vid, Mike! Love it!
January 12, 2011 at 4:31 am
mothafucker mike u r awesome
January 12, 2011 at 4:34 am
Yeah Mike should have his own set of videos. More like this. Game Glitches, Secrets and oddities within the old retro titles. It would be great.
Anyways. Awesome tip Mike.
January 12, 2011 at 4:45 am
If the dudes over at Rooster Teeth can come up with all sorts of weird videogame related shows, surely Mike can get his own show! 🙁
January 12, 2011 at 4:50 am
It would be good if Mike would make other of those “how-to” videos, and see how they go
January 12, 2011 at 4:54 am
Did the programmers make this possible on purpose?
January 12, 2011 at 5:01 am
MIke, you are freakin’ awesome!! bold, correct, straight to the point, and perfect!! Great job man!! I will try this stuff right away… thanks a lot dude!
January 12, 2011 at 5:07 am
Mike should have a sort of “video game proving grounds”
I challenge him to discover if running a lawn mower over the Nintendo power pad will get the high score in World Class Track Meet like MIke Chapman from HomestarRunner.com charges.
January 12, 2011 at 5:08 am
First of all: great video mike! great to see you in front of the camera.
Second of all: UUUGGHHHH BLIP!!! destroys my pc and my internet connection
January 12, 2011 at 5:47 am
Happy New Year guys!
I had a problems with loging in, now my browser works correct. I enjoyed a lot the new series of Nerd, and didn’t like Christmas episode at all. As for this idea that Mike has to have his own show on Cinemassacre.com – it’s awesome!
January 12, 2011 at 6:03 am
Actually me and my cousin jumped over the pole in 1-1 without any tricks like that back in the day. It was a simple run and jump, but pretty difficult to time it right. But cool trick nonetheless.
January 12, 2011 at 6:09 am
Nice, looks “pretty easy” once you know that you have to follow the turtle…
January 12, 2011 at 6:14 am
A show on which Mike comes up with unusual and bizarre things about videogames and movies (or whatever else he enjoys talking about) would be pretty interesting. The open-ended format would prevent it from becoming formulaic and allow him to talk about anything he wants. It would be like a museum of oddities.
The only problem is that people would enjoy it so much, that he would have to come up with more haha.
January 12, 2011 at 6:15 am
How the hell does someone discover such a thing!? Some glitches that are out there I wonder how the hell they found that out, were they just trying a bunch of random shit until something came up? If so I wonder how many more of these glitches are undiscovered because you have to do some crazy precise stuff for it to work.
January 12, 2011 at 6:26 am
How do you discovered it!?
January 12, 2011 at 6:44 am
Mike, You need to do more secrets James can do reviews, Mike does the easter eggs!!!! the perfest combo!!!! and of course you have to end them the way you did this one. M. F. Mike… OUT!!!!
January 12, 2011 at 7:02 am
I want more of this! We don’t get to see enough of Motherfucker Mike. It would be the best idea in the world to get Mike to have his own segment/show on Cinemassacre. I would so watch the fuck out of that shit!!! MORE MOTHERFUCKER TO THE PEOPLE!
January 12, 2011 at 7:58 am
I remember doing this once as a kid. It wasn’t using a turtle nor a platform nor another ‘cheat’ however. I don’t think it was 1-1 though, since I remember the castle never ending in the background when I ran.
Another thing I remember was when I managed to outrun a ‘fire-shot’. Never could reproduce that one either.
January 12, 2011 at 8:07 am
That’s really cool. Mike, you should consider doing vids like this in the future. It’d be cool to get tips and tricks on the old school games (especially the old school games lol). They could air between AVGN video updates.
January 12, 2011 at 8:21 am
That was great Mike! You should really do more of these, you seem like such a nice person.
January 12, 2011 at 8:30 am
Hey, Mike, cool video. And hey, James, we’d still like to have you on Cinemablend.com. We just did a story on Ivan Reitman confirming that everything we know about Ghostbusters 3 is wrong. You’d appreciate the site.
You can reach me at [email protected] if you’re interested. Thanks, guys and keep up the great work.
January 12, 2011 at 9:06 am
Thanks Mike! I’ve got to try that sometime on the VC.
January 12, 2011 at 9:29 am
Well Mike, thank you for giving me my useless knowledge of the day! Hahaha! That was a pretty sweet jump. 😛
January 12, 2011 at 10:17 am
Cool video!, i love these SMB glitches, Motherfockermike FTW
January 12, 2011 at 10:27 am
Sweet vid Mike, hope to see more like this in the future!
January 12, 2011 at 10:30 am
So is mother fucker mike getting his own series now?>
January 12, 2011 at 10:54 am
Haha, that’s awesome! Mario is gonna have tired legs if he keeps on running!
Hope you do more of these vids Mike, as you can see we think its great!
January 12, 2011 at 10:56 am
Wait, I’m a little confused about this video. Does “Mike” fuck other people’s moms or just his own?
January 12, 2011 at 11:43 am
More videos like this with our favorite motherfucker!
January 12, 2011 at 11:46 am
AWESOME!! who would thought that works that way, you’re incredible, Mike!!
January 12, 2011 at 11:48 am
Cool video, please do more 😀
January 12, 2011 at 12:18 pm
My mind has just been BLOWN! My friends and I used to talk about “Wouldn’t it be rad if we could jump over the pole on the first level?” back in 1988. Thank you, Mike!
January 12, 2011 at 12:26 pm
i would really like to see more videos with mike. and don’t cut down on the curse-words 😀
January 12, 2011 at 1:08 pm
Happy Video Game Mike roflmao
Thats sweet I’m going to try that! Need to get my 72 pin connector replaced first though 🙁
January 12, 2011 at 1:09 pm
MotherFucker Mike? Black leather jacket? After that video of you with all of your action figures there’s pretending to be cool or hard. I don’t know who you’re trying to fool/impress! You sound like a real nice guy, just embrace the nerdiness!
Cool job with the video though.
January 12, 2011 at 1:11 pm
nice, well done mike. Way to supply the site with more video game content. MOAR!
January 12, 2011 at 1:31 pm
motherfucker mike needs his section on cinemassacre!
January 12, 2011 at 1:51 pm
I agree with most of the comments on here. Mike could be the Colbert to AVGN’s Jon Stewart.
January 12, 2011 at 1:52 pm
That fucking advert at the start will follow me to the grave! Every Cinemassacre and Penny Arcade video shows the same car advert. If I buy one, will they fuck off and leave me alone?
January 12, 2011 at 1:55 pm
Wow, Mike looks like Lupin the Third!
January 12, 2011 at 1:58 pm
January 12, 2011 at 2:03 pm
I hope we get to see more cool game tips from Mike in the future! Cant get enough of that Motherfucker.
January 12, 2011 at 2:05 pm
January 12, 2011 at 2:16 pm
I’m going to try it right now
January 12, 2011 at 2:46 pm
Thats one Fucking Awesome Motherfucker!
WE NEED MORE OF THIS!!!!
January 12, 2011 at 3:13 pm
January 12, 2011 at 3:26 pm
Man this video was great!I want more motherfuckermike man!
January 12, 2011 at 3:35 pm
January 12, 2011 at 3:36 pm
that is badass. mf mike….. i finally forgive you for quitting hero quest 😉
but yeah sweet vid man, i’ll watch stuff like this any day.
January 12, 2011 at 3:49 pm
I did this when I was a kid but I think I did it by accident.
January 12, 2011 at 3:52 pm
Awesome Motherfucker Mike!! make more videos for your fans! =)
Greetings from Peru!
January 12, 2011 at 3:58 pm
Mike and James should get the Nobel prise..those 2 are FUCKING LEGENDS!!!!
January 12, 2011 at 4:14 pm
This would be a good new series ” Motherfucker Mike’s game tips”
January 12, 2011 at 4:26 pm
I can’t get the turtle to “return”. I manage to jump on the turtle at the top of the screen but he never “returns”. C’est la vie.
January 12, 2011 at 4:34 pm
I could hear your heart skip a beat when you almost missed the mushroom. Did you record yourself while playing as well? Would have been awesome to hear your reactions.
This is kinda like you guys beating Ninja Gaiden 2, would have been cool to see you guys playing that and actually finishing it.
January 12, 2011 at 4:39 pm
Oh also, has this been done before? I tried to find someone who did it as well, but seems you’re the only one so far who’s jumped flag 1-1.
I can believe it took you “many, many tries”, but you probably didn’t even know whether or not it would work. Did you try it based on an existing glitch? Pretty hardcore dedication.
January 12, 2011 at 4:44 pm
I think I know why I’m not seeing the turtle “return” (see earlier comment). I’m noticing that your recording shows two blocks beneath mario. My television is cropping a lot of the screen. I’m only seeing about 1.125 blocks below Mario. I guess I’m going to have to hook my Nintendo up via the composite connection vs. the RF switch.
January 12, 2011 at 5:10 pm
Nice work Mike. You should definitely do more of these. Would this jump count as something Glitch Gremlin created?
January 12, 2011 at 5:11 pm
i managed to jump the flagpole without the turtle on stage 1. but i only done it twice,both times on my sega
January 12, 2011 at 5:16 pm
Hey motherfucker mike, can you please fuck my mother? that would be so cash!
January 12, 2011 at 5:17 pm
That’s like taking a shit while doing a handstand!
January 12, 2011 at 5:22 pm
I enjoyed this more than the latest AVGN episode (no offense James). But this was was tight.
January 12, 2011 at 5:28 pm
You obviously haven’t done this glitch before, let alone TWICE.
Proof: You said you did it on your Sega.
January 12, 2011 at 5:50 pm
that is awesome! thanks mike!
January 12, 2011 at 6:02 pm
Thanks Mike! I can never do this. I always had to use the Game Genie.
January 12, 2011 at 6:20 pm
January 12, 2011 at 6:31 pm
Thanks for the info man, and if you haven’t noticed it, my name allows me to shoot TIGER shots at any of my kids if they ever mess up.
January 12, 2011 at 6:34 pm
nice it works
January 12, 2011 at 6:55 pm
Mike I love when you’re in videos!!! That was pretty epic. I loved the sound effect when you killed the turtle. Good times.
January 12, 2011 at 6:58 pm
I like this. Mike should be doing this from now on, just random tips and tricks for video games.
January 12, 2011 at 7:25 pm
haha i thought this was a joke video when i clicked it really interesting actually
January 12, 2011 at 7:34 pm
I actually managed to jump over this flagpole by pure luck/bug, without the turtle. That was very long time ago, but I remember running endlessly until timer reached zero 😛
January 12, 2011 at 8:05 pm
That is pretty cool. I lol’ed whedn you called yourself “Motherfucker Mike”
January 12, 2011 at 8:06 pm
January 12, 2011 at 8:30 pm
i guess that was pretty unnecessary.
I always wondered if that was possible! Thanks for posting that!
January 12, 2011 at 8:34 pm
neat minivideo haha
January 12, 2011 at 8:36 pm
NIce tip Mike! the next video tip should be about how to refuel the plane in Top Gun! by the way in that game James did something like that, he flew the plane over the carrier and outside the tv!! jajajaja
January 12, 2011 at 8:41 pm
Man, i didn´t think that was possible, the childhood dreams of many had come true!!!
January 12, 2011 at 8:50 pm
That was a neat trick. I was damned sure before watching this that it could not be done, but you changed me in short order. Amazing!
January 12, 2011 at 8:57 pm
lol, thanx man :p
January 12, 2011 at 9:03 pm
what the fuck is that jamie lee curtis advertisement at the end of the video? she’s a huge star, been in all those halloween movies and shit, and now she’s slinging yogurt?
January 12, 2011 at 9:41 pm
Mind was blown! hey i really liked this, short and enjoyable. Really hope to see more of you mike!
January 12, 2011 at 10:52 pm
Mouahha Love it!!
January 12, 2011 at 11:09 pm
more of this!
January 12, 2011 at 11:41 pm
Jaja great video!
Thanks Motherfuckr Mike!
January 12, 2011 at 11:56 pm
Mike you should post more videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, great video thanks.
January 13, 2011 at 12:37 am
Ah weird, I tried it, killed the turtle but he didn’t come back.
January 13, 2011 at 1:17 am
Wow that is amazing thought that was an impossible thing to do w/o cheating GOOD JOB MAN!!!!
January 13, 2011 at 1:36 am
wow that is very cool i’ve watched lots of glitches for mario bros. never seen this one,
the first water lvl I remember when i was like 7 swimming over the green blocks at top just to find another warp zone but never accomplished again since. I remember just hitting the A with critical timing to bounce mario out of the water. maybe we can figure this out ….
not sure if anyone has done this before or knows a way
