11 speedrunners set a record by beating Home Alone on the NES at the exact same time

Kevin's not here

Home Alone on the NES isn't exactly the most exciting game there is, but there's a community of speedrunners out there dedicated to the game. They've managed to perfect runs through the title through use of a glitch, and 11 of them have showed off their mastering of the game at AGDQ 2020.

All 11 speedrunners started their games at the same moment, and they were gunning for a specific glitch that would let them lock in the earliest possible completion time, which sits at 19:58. If a speedrunner missed out on the glitch, everyone would reset and start the clock again. When every single speedrunner nailed the glitch, everyone sat back and waited for the timer to hit 19:58 to earn their record!
