I am not a big fan of these runs, if he beat the whoooooole thing in 18 minutes (impossible I know) I'm interested but glitch runs just don't do it for me. I love skill based or running through games normally as fast as they can. Like during this past event I caught myself watching an hour of a Quake 100% speed run and was fascinated, or like the Funkdoc run of the original castlevania and just beat the shit out of it.
Using glitches to your advantage against AI I'm cool with, but a glitch to skip to the end doesn't really interest me.
That's why there are multiple different kinds of runs. This run is just the fastest.
You turn on the system, start the game and the fastest way you can beat the game (that we know of) is this run.
