The Illumina Curse: Minecraft Speedrunning's Strangest Phenomenon

Buckle up, because in this video, I discuss one of the strangest phenomenon's in minecraft speedrunning. This is by far the most effort I've ever put into a video.

Music is mainly from Epidemic Sounds, but I use one LEMMiNOMusic song:

    In almost every speedrun story there's Illumina and someone else. He may not have the longest running records or the latest record, but I am under the impression that the general consensus he's the best minecraft speedrunner. Illumina seems like what Senna is for F1, may not have The highest numbers, but he's the one everyone look at and compare to. Great job at paying him homage and underlining his bad luck at the same time @pikaJ
