Did you play Tetris when you were a kid? Then you won't believe this

Can you clean 40 lines of Tetris in 19.68 seconds? I can't, but look at this guy breaking the 20-second barrier for the first time ever. The last time the world was so amazed was when Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier. It's so freaking insane that this cat is freaking out.

Incredible 20-Second Tetris Game Must Be Seen To Be Believed

Are you ready to see something incredible? I'm not sure you're ready. Get ready. Are you ready now? Okay. Check this business out.

There's playing Tetris, and then there's PLAYING TETRIS. This video, of a Tetris "sprinter" who goes by Keroco, falls into the latter category.

Mental Floss has a more in-depth breakdown of what's happening, but basically: Sprinters try to clear 40 lines in Tetris as fast as possible. Here, Keroco cranks out 40 lines in 19.68 seconds, the first time anyone has ever beaten the 20-second barrier.

Also recommended: Check out Keroco's YouTube page, which documents the slow climb toward perfection. I don't even know what else to say about this. Good gravy.
