    I saw that the other day and that comment is hilarious. The cube is stickered with just one scrambled side (I think).

    I keep getting a Hostgator ad on YouTube which starts with a guy playing with a cube so I was looking for other ads featuring the Rubik's Cube. I've found a few ads but do you know about any other examples?

    Do you know about any other advertising?

    Don't want to forget this exists. But in seriousness, go to the Rubik's Official channel. They have some.

    Yes, Guinness is not the be all end all to world records. They are poor at keeping their records updated. Unfortunately after all that research, the journalist didn't choose to look at WCA to get accurate information.

    I didn't go through the history to see if this had been shared yet, but Rubik's Cube is such a perfect fit for volumetric display demos (cube first shows up around :30)

    Something you don't see every day, someone wanting to keep a Rubik's Brand.

    It appears in the recently released film The Bad Batch, in a junkyard full of cannibals in a dystopian future there is a guy playing with the cube.

    Who has seen Despicable Me 3 already?

    Lots of cubes in it :p It may be just me, but I'm pretty sure they got colour schemes right/wrong literally from scene to scene and at times from shot to shot.

    I'd just like to point out that, now that the Blu-ray has been released, you can actually see that there are more than six colours on the cubeā€¦ (Or if you want to chalk that up to shading differences, there are two corners with white and red in clockwise order.)

    A girl dressed up in a cube can be seen in the background.
