Cubism for beginners

There is much vileness in the advertising industry. It is a slick machine which latches onto the latest kids trends and then flogs the crap out of them. This kind of thing is lampooned mercilessly by The Simpsons in the Mattel and Mars Bar Quick Energy Chocobot Hour.

But is there nothing they won't make a tacky cartoon out of? Do you remember the Rubik's Cube back in the 80's? (Are you faster than a six-year old? Ok, how about a three-year old?) So anyway some network genius hired a few hacks to crank out a ridiculous backstory where the cube becomes some kind of magical anthropomorphic gypsy relic. This has to be the lamest cartoon of all time. Evar [sic].

Possible runner-up: The Wonder Twins. Am I just sick or is this full of obvious sexual innuendo?

Speaking of lame cartoon sexual antics, we must give honourable mention to the famous Go-Bots obvious ass-rape scene. Well, as I remember they were even known as the Gay Transformers, fer Chrissake.

And to tie it all up with a bow, here's an Irish robot solving the Rubik's cube in 32.7 secs.
