Dublin Teenager Solves Rubik’s Cube In Just 9 Days


WHEN Hungarian architect Erno Rubik designed the Rubik’s Cube over 30 years ago, he set out to test some of the greatest analytical minds in the world, however one thing he didn’t expect was for his puzzle to be beaten in just 9 days.

Dublin teenager Sean Holden did just that, and has now become an internet sensation, with as many as 400 viewers tuning in to his live YouTube channel during his record breaking feat.

“I don’t think I could have done this without the messages of support from viewers,” the modest 16-year-old told WWN, “I’m overwhelmed at the response I received and I just want to thank all my fans for sticking with me through the whole 216 hours it took me to solve the puzzle”.

The son-of-two smashed previous records set by his sister Jane and his second cousin Derek, who failed to even match the colours of the cube on each side in three months.

“I’ll probably look into doing a Rubik’s Cube competition abroad somewhere,” he added, “I’d love to represent Ireland and become the quickest time in the world at solving the cube”.

However, following some research by this reporter, we found that the fastest time on record was in fact 5.25 seconds, claimed by an American 14-year-old by the name of Lucas Etter.

“How the fucking fuck did he do that?” Sean Holden exclaimed when told the news, “No, seriously, like what the fuck? What the fucking fuck? Jesus Christ! Five fucking seconds. That can’t be right. Nah, nah, nah, that’s bullshit. There’s no way, like”.

Following a brief viewing of the record attempt online, Holden picked up his Rubik’s Cube and smashed it off the wall, before retiring to his bedroom.
