It may have been called the run (numerous times) but few people know that that it took many tries for Dan and Vinny to casually run through Contra on NES. Here's a short documentation of their struggles, abridged for your convenience.

Thanks for watching!

Good video! I'm starting to think they don't actually know when they start the video if it's the run or not? Which is weird because they're elite pro gamers... =P

Wait. So all those practice runs were actual attempts? I feel lied to. Might have to cancel my subscription.

Great video! This is definitely one of my favorite series on the site. GBEAST is killing it with the content
