The point of the video is that the game can be completed even if you skip to level 4 with Shift-L and thus reduce your time to 15 minutes.
It has the usual tricks: Skips big potions, skips fights, uses shortcuts (level 7, 12 -- but not level 4, 5).

So part of the credit goes to that commenter.

Maybe that's why the boss becomes blue and breaks when he is defeated?

Hmm... Aladdin (DOS) has something similar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_jf6NAc-bo#t=1439
(More of them later on the level, and on the level starting around 43 min.)
Some walkthroughs (and the manual) describe them as Shiva statues.
