    Some people have very specific passions – take, for example, the folks at Coren Puzzle who are super into all things cubic. Browse its catalogue of YouTube videos and you’ll find tons of variations of the Rubik’s Cube.

    Things were peachy until yesterday, Coren Puzzle decided to livestream the creation of large 3D-printed Rubik’s Cube measuring 22 by 22 by 22 layers.

    Spoiler alert: It did not end well.

    You can watch the full 90-minute version of the clip if that’s your thing, but here it is cut to the moment before the devastation.

    oh no

    If it makes you feel any better, it’s not the first time the giant Rubik’s Cube exploded on its creator. In fact, his project started seven months ago, with the last mishap happening on August 11.

    But keep doing you, Coren Puzzle. You are the symbolism for eternal hope.
