This Super Mario World glitch is fascinating, but does it count as beating the game?

Earlier this week, YouTube user Minecraft SethBling did something unique: On a Super Nintendo, he performed a series of draconian actions in Super Mario World to evoke a glitch and arguably beat Nintendo's classic platformer.

According to the YouTube video, those actions allowed him to "set up the console's memory in just the right way, then perform a glitch which will cause the credits to play without defeating Bowser."

Press play above to watch the entire run, listen to Minecraft SethBling's commentary and work out for yourself whether or not this counts as beating Super Mario World.
