And everyone who ever played that game remembers that they heard from someone who heard from their big brother's friend that you could jump over the flagpole in SMB.
Now I don't know about you, but I waited an awful lot o time trying to get that fat fucking guinea to jump over that flagpole. But alas, I ever got done (though after a few days of constant talking about it, my brother and I did convince my sister that if she jumped Luigi into the first pit in the first level that (if done right) would take her to the "Ultimate Warp Zone".
But thanks to GameTrailers.com, we can finally know, once and for all, that in fact Mario can jump over the pole.
Fucking knew it...
