I don't believe people who posted in this thread.

I watched the video myself and could not tell the sounds didn't match. I asked a few of my friends to watch the video (all cubers), and every one of them admitted that "the sounds match the cube turning."

There is no way on God's green earth that a non-cuber could identify this inconsistency.

Perhaps, but we're a bunch of cubers! The audio has quick successions of turns that don't always match what you'd expect to hear while watching some of the turns made in the video.

The audio and video do not match at all. I suspect he did a few solves and they combined that audio. Until the last shot, he appeared to be doing random turns/algs. If you notice, the sounds of the "writing utensil" are obviously that of a pencil, but you can see that he is using a pen. This is pretty much standard practice for a commercial. I would like to have seen a "real" solve instead of the random turns. But seriously... I imagine it would be crazy hard to fill out a form while solving.

what about a video like in the VW commercial, watch the video first b4 clicking the spoilr
can you tell the actor's hand is edited in, and is it the same person
can you tell if the pen is modded (modified to be made easier to spin by making it longer/heavier)

1) Nope, but I suspected so.
2) Nope. You can tell during the car shot when he it stops spinning, but I didn't really make note of that until after seeing the questions.

Also the fact that he made a thread about the video probably means there's something up with it lol
