A New York magician managed to avoid a speeding ticket after solving a Rubik's Cube in just one second in front of astonished police officers.

Steven Brundage was pulled over by police after driving 12 miles over the limit in the early hours of Saturday morning. When asked why he had magic paraphernalia in the car, Brundage explained he was a magician, and proved it by first solving the Rubik's Cube in 20 seconds, then in just one second.

Amazed and impressed, the two police officers let the illusionist go without a fine. Brundage subsequently posted the video on YouTube, where it has gone on to collect over 750,000 views.
