Please add the emulator used in the comments. It's also highly preferred that if you're running on emulator to capture the entire window of the emulator, including the window border.
PowerPak, Everdrive or other means to play FDS games on a NES or Famicom without an FDS are not tagged as Emulator, but if you used something like that please mention it in the comments. Using savestates to the title screen is prohibited. You need to use the reset function on your emulator or console and the reset must be shown on the video.
Timing starts on the frame that "400" appears in the top right.
Timing ends on the frame all sprites disappear after Mario touches the axe in -3.
Times below 2:45.00 need a video.
Due to the popularity of the game, times below 2:37.00 are treated with suspicion. To maximise your chances of having a run verified it is highly recommended that you stream all of your attempts and provide split files.
