Contra Speed Run Without Using the Konami Code in Under 14 Minutes

Here’s a clip of someone beating Contra for the NES in under 14 minutes.  Impressively, it’s done without the Konami code.  Yes we know the code. Up down up down.  Should we really bother?   Oh, you still have the code memorized?  Great.  We all do.  That’s not impressive.  What’s impressive is this Contra speed run.  Curious how long this guy had been practicing before perfecting this thing.
