Spelunky speedrunner Bananasaurus Rex accidentally set a world record while playing the game the other day.

Developer Mossmouth’s superdifficult platformer Spelunky has a new champion. The game, which is very difficult to defeat normally, also has a secret ending known as a “Hell run.” Speedrunner Bananasaurus Rex was actually just practicing to beat the standard ending in less than 180 seconds, but he ended up with the Hell run world record.

Check out the amazing skills (and feel inferior) in the video below:

You can watch Bananasaurus Rex stream live on his Twitch page.
