Do you remember the good old days when Rubik’s Cubes were all the rage? Well, it seems like this classic puzzle has never really gone out of style. In fact, it’s experiencing a bit of a renaissance these days, thanks to speedcubers like Abel Brata and high-profile appearances on TV shows like “The Master”.
Speaking of “The Master”, the episode featuring Abel Brata and Deddy Corbuzier’s Rubik’s Cube challenge sparked a bit of controversy among Indonesian speedcubers. Some accused Corbuzier of using magic tricks to defeat Brata, but regardless of the outcome, the challenge only added to the growing popularity of speedcubing in Indonesia.
In fact, many top-level speedcubers in Indonesia were first inspired to take up the hobby after watching “The Master” episode. Muhammad Iril Khairul Anam and Wicaksono Adi are just two examples of speedcubers who credit the show with igniting their passion for Rubik’s Cubes and speedcubing.
It just goes to show that Rubik’s Cubes have a way of capturing the imaginations of people of all ages and backgrounds. Whether you’re a seasoned speedcuber or a curious newbie, there’s always something new to discover and appreciate about this iconic puzzle.
So, the next time you see someone solving a Rubik’s Cube with lightning-fast speed and precision, remember that they might have been inspired by the same show that brought Abel Brata and Deddy Corbuzier together for that memorable “duel”.
