Also, if they absolutely needed a Koopa on a pipe, then they could have used Game Genie to get there. I'm beginning to think an intern might just be showing off.


Also, does the Daily Show broadcast at 30fps or 60fps? If it runs in 1080p30, that might explain some oddities.

This much further? That's too far? ...really?

I mean........... really? I'd be more understanding if it were pretty much any other thing in any other game, but, what... they couldn't get anybody working on the show to jump at least 8 times over pipes, pits and goombas to get that koopa on-screen? They could get somebody working on the show to fake video footage, but not get some?

Also, the timer does not move at all during the time that Mario's on screen. Probably not from a game.
The timer does tick down from 381 to 380.

Is it possible video/ROM editing really *was* more efficient than playing through to an actual level with a Koopa that looks good on TV?
Probably. Since they needed a Koopa Troopa on a pipe to match up with the joke, hacking one into the first stage would definitely be easier than going through all the levels trying to find one.

They got their hands on a beta version of Mario Maker.

Seems like an odd thing to splice together when they could've just picked an accurate level. Is it possible video/ROM editing really *was* more efficient than playing through to an actual level with a Koopa that looks good on TV?

I just saw the clip; Mario moves at a 45 degree angle and the frame rate is about 15 fps. Pretty sure one of the interns is just playing with sprites.

It's possible there was some really good video editing here. But based on how real it looks and the enemy placement, I'm leaning towards ROM hack.

I haven't seen the video yet, but considering most of The Daily Show's visual gags are photoshops, isn't it easy to conceive that this is just video editing?

Normally, I think you're correct that the Koopa would have walked off the pipe, but as you can see in the game footage here (skip to 3:30), the Koopa drops down onto the pipe, as if someone placed his spawn point in midair, which slowed him down a bit. With all the SMB level editors available, it wouldn't be too hard to change the Goomba that was supposed to be next to the pipe into a Koopa and move him upward.
