Part of what makes Guardians of the Galaxy such a well received film is the involvement of 70’s and 80’s nostalgia. In the first film, we see a young Peter Quill experience the death of his mother in the 80’s, right before he’s swept off into space to become Starlord. Throughout the remainder of the film, Quill holds on dearly to the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 tape made for him by his mother with a mix of 70’s and 80’s music. We know this same theme will continue throughout the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as well.
As such, interviewers often feel compelled to ask the cast about nostalgic items or songs from those decades. One such interview, posted by PopBuzz last week, challenges Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Starlord) to solve the famous (or infamous) Rubik’s Cube puzzle while also partaking in an interview. Just to add a little more pressure to Pratt, he was also being timed throughout the whole thing.
Under pressure, Pratt showed absolutely no signs of stress, never missed a beat within the interview conversation and, at times, even worked the Rubik’s Cube puzzle without looking at it! The interviewer asked a variety of questions and Pratt delivers in-depth and thoughtful answers to each one which leads us to believe that Pratt may just be a true cosmic wonder!
Watch Chris Pratt solve the Rubik’s Cube puzzle in a ridiculously quick amount of time while interviewing with PopBuzz below! As a bonus, watch through to the end of the interview to see Pratt dancing with a Baby Groot toy!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters this week on Friday, May 5th!
