120 stars, all collected in under two hours—1:43:54, to be exact. The time is a new world record, and you can watch speedrunner Siglemic collect it with a mesmerizing efficiency here.

Siglemic is playing the Japanese version of the game because it "has a 2.7 second advantage," according his Twitch page.


And in case you're curious, Siglemic has been playing Super Mario 64 for almost three years, and he estimates that he's played nearly 5,000 hours. Dang.
