This Rubik's Cube magic trick is a collaboration between Akira Fujii, famous for his sleight of hand, and Hideki Tani, an advocate of climax-ism.

Then, he shows another cube with the same colour combination, and finally solves the original cube in an unbelievable way.
The audience will be surprised to see how the first joke gives the clue for the next trick. Plus, the act gets everyone involved by asking them to count backwards. The product includes a special gimmick and a cube puzzle, and instructions are provided via an online video.
Collaboration Cube - Akira Fujii y Hideki Tani
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 magician shows the all faces of scrambled Rubik's Cube and says, "I will solve this cube in a moment".
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, "I'll solve all the faces in 10 seconds".
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, "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.)
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, "False Scramble" by Akira Fujii can be applied to any of the tricks with Rubik's Cube.
