Last week, YouTube user JRefleX93 posted this video and it spread across the internet faster than rumors of a PS3 price drop. Just when I start feeling good about my Rock Band/Guitar Hero skills, something like this comes out and makes me feel like the Milli Vanilli of gaming. In an interview with Interview on 8BitFix.com, JRefleX93 gave a little background to the video:
About 4 months ago, before I had my first 100 subscribers, I was talking to a friend about doing something special for the 100-subscriber mark. My friend just blurted out “Why don’t you solve the Rubik’s cube while playing Guitar Hero?” He wasn’t being serious, but I thought it might work. So I thought about how I could do it using one-handed solving and elbow strumming. So I practiced one-handed solving and I made the first GH + Rubik’s cube video about a week after this. A few weeks ago, when I was approaching 300 subscribers, I thought I would try to do the same thing but with a harder song. I chose Mr. Crowley for all the hammer-ons (which make it easier to elbow-strum). But this song is pretty long, so I decided to solve two cubes instead of one.
What’s this guy going to add to the equation when he reaches the 500 subscriber mark? A unicycle? Juggling flaming torches? Sheesh!
