There's a solved cube on angry video game nerd's tv here! Maybe he's a speedcuber too:)
Angry Video game nerd has some of the funniest videos I've seen on the internets. I watched this at work trying to contain my laughter while others stared at wtf was going on. Especially the last part where Batman shoves all the Joker games up Jokers crack :) oh man

I think it was posted on this forum in a different thread, but at one part in the movie Wall-e is holding a rubik's cube. (The logo of the movie on Fandango and similar sites was the image of wall-e and the cube)

It Takes a Thief, TV show on Discovery Channel.

Some family gets robbed of a bunch of antiques (none of them were specified)
...except the 1980's rubik's cube (scrambled state :p)

He looked pleased to get it back.

In the TV series, Big Bang Theory (which, IMO, is one of the funniest shows) there are always 3 cubes kept on a chest of drawers in the background of their living room... One cube is always solved and the other 2 are scrambled... In some of their episodes, the cube is solved except for an M2...

In case you're wondering, I ALWAYS notice random stuff in the background like this...

Well, I haven't seen it recently but wasn't Tyson on TV for a very short segment to show off the Rubik's 360 for Good Morning America?
Yeah.

My local news finally mentioned it earlier this week. I didn't see it, but my parents told me it was on for like 3 seconds. :p

Yeah I noticed stuff in the background sometimes too, I love when I recognize some of the random things. :)

a teenage guy in my area recently broke the WR for most cubes solved in an hour. i can't find coverage of it online, but it was on a local TV news station. he was only able to do 64. i couldn't believe that so little was the WR, so i did some research and found this site.

so....... are those just unofficial?

i'm confused.

So far in Malaysia, I had only seen one cube solving on the TV. Eventough its just 5-7 minutes, well im very proud of them.

They were on a Talk Show and aired around 10 pm or 11 pm. Im not sure.
The Show.

There's WCA records, which everyone respects, unofficial speedcubing.com, which most people take with a grain of salt, and then there's Guiness records, which are a joke and regulated with standards that make no sense. This guy got the third one.
