Erno Rubik was an answer on Jeopardy the other day! The clue was something along the lines of “This man’s ‘revenge’ came back with extra rows and no fixed center pieces.” Nobody got it right. :(
I think the name "Rubik's Revenge" is less known then a "4x4" because people usually count the rows of pieces. (Or just call them 10x10s.)

Might be less known among speedcubers since, you know, but I think "Rubik's Revenge" might be a bit more well known in the "interested in trivia but not necessarily speedcubing" section of the public, since it's also the title of the Wikipedia article.

Fake Flavi (alias Flavian Glont) was on german TV (ZDF) in May with his fake blindsolves:

And now he showed his almost only R U' R' U' fake solves on german RTL Supertalent Show:

Fake cubers and impostors annoy me. This kind of "cubing" is not good for the community.

And I thought sour patch kids ice cream was cringe.
