Here in Michigan, there is a local insurance company. The commercial shows a person doing everything in the car while driving. This includes texting, doing taxes, cutting toenails...etc...one of the things being done is *attempting* to solve the cube, it is seen for about half a second...

In Office Depot's little ad thing, they had a solved cube with "Smarter" written across it. Even had the right color scheme, though yellow could've been orange.

Aron "Azza" Puddy-Mathew on South Australian radio.
If only Faz lived in Adelaide, he coulda texted in, "inb4 dnf".

Edit: "Peter is the 1981 Junior Rubik Cube champ. Has he got what it takes to beat Aaron the current under 16 champ? Make sure to watch the video below to find out. (Getty Images)"

lolol

Edit 2: Aron asked me on irc to call him Azza.

Nice radio footage.

M.I.A. played at this festival, I was happy to see a few 1x1x1 cubes with the standard color scheme.

I also saw a movie called Brick.
