A very good 4 phase comedy Rubik routine


[Watch the Complete Video Performance Below!]

The magician shows the faces of scrambled Rubik's Cube and says, "I can solve this cube in one second". However his "solution" turns out to be a joke because the cube is only a box - inside the box is actually a "solved" cube.

The magician scrambles the solved cube again, and says, "I'll try to solve all the faces in less than 10 seconds".

As the audience gives the countdown, the magician desperately spins the cube to solve, however he/she fails.

After the "disappointed" reaction of the audience, the magician asserts that he/she has actually solved the puzzle.

Surrounded by the strange looks from the audience, the magician picks up the box cube that was on the side of the table the entire time, and shows that the entire color scheme matches each other - in every side.

Then the magician says, "well, I would like to solve the cube to finish anyway", and start shaking the cube horizontally with one hand. Unbelievably, the cube starts completing, and the magician finish the act with the solved cube. (You can hand the cube to the audience to check.). A very nice and well put-together routine.


Akira Fujii, who is universally famous for "The greatest professional sleight of hand artist in Japan" and Hideki Tani, who advocates the principle of climax-ism, both magicians are titled the winners of Atsukawa Award.

One with incredible sleight of hand talent, while the other is the trick creator, this Rubik's Cube magic is created by the collaboration of those two magicians with totally different but remarkable talents. Though the routine contains unexpected surprise coming with laugh and sucker tricks, but this trick can be done easily.


The routine has a powerful "call back" when the spectators realize the "solved" cube actually matches the box the cube came in. Also, this act gives the performance a chance to involve the whole audience by asking them to countdown together. As you see, this routine has been composed very well, but each technique used is also created greatly.

It has a nice blend of "comedy" effects, magical and visual.

Especially, "False Scramble" by Akira Fujii can be applied to any of the tricks with Rubik's Cube.
