This is for any cubing videos we see online if it looks sketchy, we can discuss it here, and come to a conclusion on whether it is real or fake

This solve looked sketchy to me. Is it fake?
he solves it BLD in 17 seconds
0:20 to 0:38 is spent inspecting, then there is a cut, so at least 18 seconds for inspection and then 17 seconds for solve so at least 35 seconds for whole solve which is quite reasonable for a "guiness record holder"
the guy who solved is the feet wr holder lol

The camera skip is enough to suggest fakery. They went through the "trouble" to scrabble the cube in front of the camera so it can be seen as authentic, then right before solving it cuts.
Even a magician wouldn't stoop to doing that to pull off an illusion.
