Finally: A legit ( Co-op ) eggplant run
Yes, we finally made it happen. A legitimate eggplant run that has been recorded.
Even though it was on co-op I still feel it was quite the challenge.
For those interested, here it is.

Nice work! I've never seen Yama sit still in one spot for so long in his second stage, it's like he knew what was coming. You should tweet the Youtube link to @mossmouth, just in case he hasn't seen it yet.

I imagine it's possible to do solo with the hired hands, but those little guys are rather stupid and untrustworthy. Leave them alone for a second and they'll either get themselves killed or find a way to kill you.

Very impressive, tried several times with hired help, and that did not go so well :/.

Hired help is way to twitchy but unfortunatly it is the only way of doing it in single player. I think... And I feel that if you give him the scepter, he'll kill you were you stand, and if you give him the eggplant he'll throw it immediatly.

If you get a shop with a mystery box and an altar on 4-2, you can do it without the hired help. Of course, that is a very rare thing to come across.

Also, giving the hired hand the scepter won't necessarily get you insta-killed. You can prepare the scepter and eggplant near the exit on 4-1, and keep the hired hand in a hole that he can't escape until you have the level cleared out. When ready, bring him to the exit and place any bodies away from where you'll be standing. Then even if he fires before you go into the exit, it won't be toward you. At the beginning of 4-2, if he fires right away, hopefully it'll be toward something that doesn't drag the bubble through you. If your reaction time is quick enough, though, you could potentially avoid it. Ideally, quick thinking could allow you to get into position to put down the eggplant and whip him before he kills you. It's obviously very risky, though.

After getting through 4-1 your done with the hired help so... that's something. But keeping him alive till that point seems pretty hard.

Now, all we need is a legit singleplayer eggplant run!

I'm not coming out of the house for the next couple of years. Ok? Ok.

That'll be for someone else to achieve... I like my walls and controller in the way they are.
