Screw the ocarina. I want glitch magic.
ZeldaFreakGlitcha, as revealed by Joystiq, has used his collective glitch powers to defeat Zelda: Ocarina of Time on N64 in little more than 24 minutes. Within the description of the YouTube video, he explains some of how it's done.
The idea is that by glitching the warp portal after defeating Queen Gohma and going out the door, the game tries to load the scene for the Kokiri Emerald scene and the main Deku Tree area at the same time. This results in the game loading a room during the final escape battle.
The text for the Japanese version goes faster, which is why it's done on that version. The whole bit with the bottle at the beginning of the game is to activate the warp glitch. The deku sticks are used since their power is as good as the Master Sword. Dying at the Queen Gohma boss is on purpose, so that the stone wall is gone, giving access to the door.
