Samus Paulicelli Proved to Be Superhuman in This Definitely Not Edited One-Handed Blast Beat Video

Well with that out of the way, prepare to be damn stunned by this world record-shattering grind. How he manages to pull it off while still hitting hard as hell, and puffs on a pipe like Bilbo fucking Baggins I have no idea. It seems like the digital age has coincided with the rise of ubermenschs capable of feats that puny musicians a few decades back could never manage. Truly this is a golden age of talent.
