As we’ve already told you guys, Steve Wiebe is going to try and take back the Donkey Kong world record at this E3. Stride Gum has now pledged $10,001 in quarters to Mr. Wiebe if he does actually grab the record.

“Steve Wiebe is an inspiration to gamers everywhere, and we believe he truly deserves the title of Donkey Kong world champion. This is exactly the kind of long lasting endeavor that we here at Stride appreciate, and we have full confidence that Wiebe will once again surpass the million points mark and avoid the kill screen for long enough in the process.” - Gary Osifchin, marketing director at Stride

I’m going to be stopping by the booth to check out this action, and hopefully witness Steve win back his record!
