The lights are on
After a back-and-forth with his King of Kong rival Steve Wiebe and newcomer Hank Chien, everyone's favorite hot sauce-shilling, USA tie-wearing, world class a-hole arcade champion is back on top of the Donkey Kong leaderboards. At Boomers-Grand Prix Arcade in Florida, he surpassed Chien's 1,061,700 score to set the new mark at 1,062,800.
In typically ****ish confident fashion, Mitchell quit the game immediately after passing Chien's score. When asked about it, he responded "Some say I'm being cocky. Some say I'm being lazy. I say I'm being Billy Mitchell."
During the same event, Mitchell also set a new Donkey Kong, Jr. world record with his score of 1,270,900.
