The movie Withdrawn, now streaming on Netflix, has a guy learning the Rubik's Cube all throughout the movie. The movie is pretty terrible and pointless, unfortunately.

Yet another predictable and not that impressive "Rubik's Magic" show on Britain's Got Talent:

I saw that! If you listen closely, you can hear the cube turning in the beginning when he's turning it over in his hands.

I know and it is really funny that the audience thinks that it is so impressive. But I guess the sane is true "There is a sucker born everyday"

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!

Good showmanship but simple tricks and 4 move scrambles.

Ready player one the main character uses a cube that turns back time when solved.

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

In Ready Player One, there are a couple rubiks cube scenes.

There's a bank commercial which features a Rubik's cube rather well.

Can someone translate it?

Open from morning until it's solved. You wouldn't expect it. Knab works for your benefit.
Thanks
