Apr 19, 2015 By Scott Neumyer 0

If you’ve ever played Tetris then you’ll probably understand just how absolutely insane this video is.

In less than 20 seconds, Japanese player “Keroco” races to finish 40 lines. Yes, that’s 40 lines in 19.68 seconds. According to MentalFloss.com, that’s the first time anyone has ever broken the 20-second barrier.

Hearing about the feat is one thing, but just wait until you watch it. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life.
