Now that is multi-tasking.

Now do that with three Rubik's Cubes!

Math is SO HARD.  I see two hands at work here.

I thought that as well, and the right hand does seem to look a little funny at times.

OTOH, that dresser seems to be there throughout the whole video-at least its shadow. Not sure where an accomplice would be hiding. Plus the shadows on the wall seem right.

I think what he meant is we were expecting each hand to be doing their respective task independently. Like juggling only with the right hand and solving only with the left. Or possibly, juggling both the cube and the balls with one hand while solving the cube.

While a need trick, I imagine he coordinated the exact turns before hand to assure the cube would fall into his left hand (notice he does not appear to solve with his right) to allow for a turn each cycle which requires tossing the cube in such a way to get the face he wants and moving a set amount of rows left or right. Impressive to coordinate this, but he is not solving a Rubiks Cube as much as manipulating with one hand while remembering a long string for the solution.

Yeah, that looked like a non-random series of moves to mix up the cube.  A reverse of the solving algorithm would work.

fairly impressive, but effeminate wallpaper is disturbing

There was a link a while back here on Fark (I think) that showed the "easy way" to impress people by solving Rubik's Cube. Basically, there is a 30 move sequence that scrambles the first time, then descrambles the second time. The idea is you memorize it, get very used to it, and impress people with the speed you are able to "solve" an apparently random cube.

Still, kudos to the guy for combining the trick with juggling to make a viral video.

This.

Once you learn how to solve a Rubik's Cube the magic is pretty much gone.

and you memorized that instead of doing what?

ahhh nope. he actually solved it. some people have math brains. this guy is one of them. the moves he used to scramble the cube were from a random scramble generator site, one i use myself.
this explains why they are very deliberate moves, instead of the retardedly fast and fluid moves he uses to actually solve. also, he does do a few bits of the solution with his right hand, mostly just pinky flicks though, so they are hard to catch.
