As we reported earlier this week, Super Mario Bros. 3 speedrunner Mitch Fowler was to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and show off his skills. And on Friday night, he did so, appearing on the first iteration of the show’s new “Three-Legged Race” segment.

Fowler was not only racing against the clock, however – he was also competing with Columbia University’s 4X400 Relay Team running their own race, as well as the speed with which it would take host Stephen Colbert to warm up and eat a Hot Pocket. Fowler was also there to advertise Summer Games Done Quick, which takes place from July 3rd through the 10th.
