Late last year, Jim from Scotland promised GameCenter CX host Shinya Arino a bottle of whisky if he cleared the Super Mario Maker level he made.

The course was submitted as part of a challenge that pitted Arino against a slew of courses.

In the most recent GameCenter CX, Arino showed the bottle of Johnnie Walker that Jim sent, opening it up and pouring himself a drink. Arino didn’t actually clear the course and passed (he gave up!), but Jim still sent the whisky as a thanks for getting featured, and Arino toasted him for creating such a difficult course.

Jim posts over on the Something Awful forums and you can read the lengths he went through to ensure Arino got the Johnnie Walker.
