is this like a speedrunning trick, or just something the guy made up on his own?

Within the first minute the answer to this question should be clear.

Basically for anyone who thought the video was too long: The guy in the video either invented or is part of a community that plays Super Mario 64 by pressing the A button as little as possible so they complete levels by coming up with insane moves such as "Scuttlebug Raising" which is where you abuse loading zones and enemy programming to make a scuttlebug in HMC start levitating. So watch the rest of the video.

Ever since the minigame was invented of Collect The 8 Red Coins Star Before A 1Up Mushroom Can Touch You, I've been looking for ways people can play a game in a fairly fun looking way that bares almost no resemblance to actually playing it, and now I've found the perfect example, and hell, it's even in the same game. SM64 is incredible.

Actually lmfao in the video he says he builds up speed by making Mario collide with a wall and a ceiling element to make the game start accelerating him for some reason my eyes glazed over about but anyway he does this technique for 12 hours to build up a speed with like 8 digits in it which usually Mario has like 50 speed when he's running I guess, for scale.

it's basically a type of pedro spot which, as we established before, is pretty powerful

I guess he's like a TAS God basically. Right now I'm watching a video where he does a Mario Wings To The Sky star with 0 presses by somehow teleporting goombas from king bob-omb's hill in a bridge style to the floating island from 50 feet away by waving his wing cap at them.

I can't tell quite from looking at it but it appears he's somehow storing goombas ?? and then using King Bob-Omb's body to place them. Unfortunately the video doesn't have audio commentary and I don't feel like reading the description on it.

This video is an improvement from my previous video in which I collected this star using 1 A press. You can find that video here: https://youtu.be/j6W37o8_GE4. At that time, I believed it to be infeasible to use a goomba staircase to reach the secrets, because the number of goombas required was exponential in terms of the number of bounces. However, since then, I developed two new goomba structures: the goomba cluster and the goomba oasis, described as follows:

There's something heartwarming about finding other people who manage to love something in ways we perhaps can't even imagine, in a world that's so hosed up and AIDS-Ridden.

I like the videos where he manages to improve on previous a-presses by spending hours slowly manipulating a shyguy to the other side of the map.

I think TAS people are cooler than speedrunners. Runners are still actually playing a game and practicing tricks and whatnot but TAS ppl are absolutely insane and when they see a video game all they can see is the code behind the Matrix
