Akira Fujii, who is universally famous for gThe greatest professional slight
of hand artist
in Japanh and Hideki Tani, who advocates the principle of climax-ism, both
titled the winners of Atsukawa Award.
One with incredible slight 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
but remarkable talents. Though the routine contains unexpected surprise
laugh and sucker tricks, but this trick can be done easily.
The magician shows the all faces of scrambled Rubik's Cube and says, gI
will solve this cube in a momenth.
As he says, the magician solves the cube but the audience laughs because
of his unimaginably unique method.
(You can finish the act in this phase if you are the comic magician.)
The magician scrambles the solved cube again, and says, gI'll solve all
the faces in 10 secondsh.
As the audience gives the countdown, the magician desperately spins the
cube to solve, however he/she fails.
While disappointing mood fades in, the magician asserts that he/she has
solved the puzzle.
Surrounded by the strange looks from the audience, the magician picks up
the other cube stayed on the side of the
table and shows that the entire color scheme matches each other.
Then the magician says, gwell, I would like to solve the cube to finish
anywayh, 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.)
The audience would be amazed when they realize that the first little joke
provides the clue to the following matching
effect. 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.
Especially, gFalse Scrambleh by Akira Fujii can be applied to any of the
tricks with Rubik's Cube.
