This video uses a new route developed that has shaved off 20 seconds off the previous world record, made this level sub one minute and one of the hardest levels in Invasion 2 to speedrun. There's a lot of content to unpack here so let's go through everything
0:03 - Lost 1-2 frames since pipe entrance could have been more perfect
0:05 - 0:09 Here I spin fly because I want to do two things: I want to break the blocks and kill the koopa. Here I also have to avoid bouncing on the bottom brick and need to spindrill the koopa here by holding down. Moreover, I am cautious to not break the right wall since I am 80% sure that loses time.
0:10 - 0:11 Here is the first easy statue clip, however it's not all that easy. There are 4 ways the easy statue clip may pan out. One, you just get ejected out the wall. (Earlier Success) Two you clip less than a half block down. This is not possible since you will get damaged by the koopa due to being two high up. (Later Success) You will clip around 1.5 blocks, then need to turn around instantly since unstatuing is almost the time it takes for you to clip out left.
0:13 - 0:15 Here the enemy placements are heinously inconvenient for speedrunning. My goal was to go for a first cycle goomba that I achieved. Here you have to jump off the last few pixels of that block and double jump in a way to avoid the ripper and to spin while floating down to enter the mid two blocks there. If you don't you receive likely a two to three cycle goomba. Then you have to statue immediately to avoid damage. Next Part
0:16 - 0:20 Here you want to crouch clip where the goomba is, the inputs here make it really easy to slip out that crack. After crouch clipping you have to turn into a statue while holding down. If you don't you bounce on the buzzy beetle and clip through the ground and die. Then you do some timing and kill the Rex and block at the same time. Then you clip
0:30 - 0:32 Same logic as the statue clip before
0:50 - I did not realize the bullet was going to kill the red koopa, had I realized that I could have jumped earlier and received a smaller time
Besides that, this run was mostly just executing jumps and has 7 glitches or tricks used in the same level.

i found a third way to key clip through a wall in the engine
so in essence i have a tanooki suit (a key or something) and i spinjump into the wall and turn into a statue. then i can clip through the wall
for some reason it doesnt work if i have too much vertical speed upwards or if im flying
so this makes the key clip easier by using it in tandem with another glitch and makes statue clipping a lot easier if you have one of these items
