He began perfecting his game every night after his wife and kids went to bed, and not only surpassed Billys record, but ended up with a thought-to-be-impossible 1,000,000 points.

A tidal wave of media coverage followed, and Steve Wiebe quickly became a celebrity in his hometown of Seattle, WA. He also rediscovered his love for teaching, and regained the respect of all who once doubted him.

The Spinal Tap of computer documentaries! I loved this documentary. Billy Mitchell is an unbelievable tool.

For fans of Regular Show, there is an episode that spoofs on King of Kong with the episode "High Score". Garrett Bobby Ferguson being the Billy Mitchell parody.
