How to Get at Least 885 Free Lives in Super Mario 3D Land

YouTube user Arctic Extras found what is either a glitch or a wonderful Easter Egg that has generated at least 885 free lives for him so far. He makes one well-timed hop, and it's all auto-bouncing and fee-life-harvesting from there.

Design mistake? Bug? No. I declare this to be a feature! Just like the infinite lives features in classic Mario games.
