Yep, I'm demonstrating the famous "Crooked Cartridge" trick of Ocarina of Time!

I'm using it to leave the Kokiri Forest without beating or even visiting the Deku Tree and without obtaining the Sword/Shield!

You do the "Crooked Cartridge" trick by pulling the left side of your game cartridge slightly out of the console while the game is running.
You've done it right when Link starts flashing and the sound becomes corrupted.

While Link is flashing you'll be able to walk through objects which is what this trick is used for!

But you have to be very careful when pulling out the cartridge, because the chances of crashing the game are high while trying to make Link flash as you can see in the video.

My first try was a failure and it resulted in the yellow line appearing in the upper-left corner of the screen which allows you to access the debug menu as I've shown in another video...

It should be obvious, that this trick is only possible on the N64, as neither the Gamecube/Wii nor an emulator allows you to pull out the cartridge of your game! ;)
