"Over 3 billion combinations" - it seems even the manufacturer didn't appreciate the true complexity of Rubik's Cube back then. :lol:

Funny videos. Now I remember how these old ads were like in the 80s! :)

I especially like the stop-motion animation of the 3x3x3 solving itself. I recon they must have recorded it backwards ... :lol:

I missed completely any ads in the 80s, but these videos are funny!

The Rubik's Magic is still my favourite!
