Rubik's Cube sightings in media

My daughter plays the app Homescapes on her tablet. Whenever she gets to a hard level, Austin, the butler, has a Rubik's cube in his hand. (Because the cube is so hard to solve!) Then my daughter hands me the tablet, and I will play the level multiple times until I finally complete it for her. When I do, I am rewarded with seeing Austin holding a solved Rubik's cube. Let me say that solving the cube is MUCH easier than solving those hard levels! Screenshot_2018-05-15-20-43-10.png Screenshot_2018-05-15-20-46-56.png

Yet another predictable and not that impressive "Rubik's Magic" show on Britain's Got Talent:
Good showmanship but simple tricks and 4 move scrambles.

@1:00 - scramble from WCA orientation is x U' B' L' U'
@2:00 - scramble from WCA orientation is y x2 D R' U B'

For anyone interested in this article about US Nationals 2018, well here it is: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/15/sports/cubing-usa-nationals-max-park.html

From the glance that I have done to it, this is so far my favorite paragraph "Sometimes a new cube will arrive that looks just like a dozen others he already has, but Joe assures me that it’s way better." Is not this the life and truth of all cubers:D
