It's the lighting. Easy mistake to make. If he hadn't have said he'd got 3 scrambled, I'd have probably thought z-perm as well.

My father was green colourblind. He once bought a pair of sage green trousers to match his brown jacket. He thought they looked the same.

Maybe to someone that's colorblind, a regular Rubik's cube looks like a Rubik's Icon Cube.

It doesn't have to be bad.

Colour blindness is inaccurate. They still see colours and can tell them apart. They just don't see them the same way other people do. Some colours appear the same to them are different to us.

Interestingly enough, colourblind people often see some shades of grey as red, green or a flashing mishmash of both. This can best be seen by non-colourblind people when a newscaster wears a grey tie / suit and it appears to flash red / green when they move.

lol, it IS inaccurate. I saw this news broadcast about Harris Chan, and when they showed a clip of what it probably looks like they greyscaled the camera (that's total, not red-green). I had to admit, went to him and asked what type of colour-blind he had. Said that he can still tell apart colours on the cube easily.

Also, a meffert's megaminx has a really bad color scheme for colourblind people, because even I have some trouble distinguishing. (red and red-orange, what a pick)
