After watching King of Kong you’d doubt it, but Billy Mitchell apparently really can play, setting new World Records for Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr.:
Mitchell evidently quit his Donkey Kong game immediately after beating Chien’s mark. Asked why, Mitchell said: “Some say I’m being cocky. Some say I’m being lazy. I say, I’m being Billy Mitchell.”
Love the dodgy videos posted in the comments to the post too - all part of the mythos.
