A few days ago, on October 21, 2015, Marty McFly and Doc Brown made an appearance in their time traveling DeLorean from the year 1985.
In case you didn’t know, Marty McFly and Doc Brown were the main characters in a popular 80’s film called Back to the Future. Doc had created a time traveling car, which took Marty to 1955, when his parents were in high school. With the help of the younger Doc Brown and a famous lightning bolt, Marty was able to make it back home.
At the end of the movie, Doc recruited Marty and his girlfriend, Jennifer, to go 30 years into the future to help their children. It ended with the three of them venturing off into time. Fans had to wait four years to see what would happen in Back to the Future II.
The trio traveled 30 years into the future from 1985, which ended up being this year, 2015. In this version of 2015, flying cars are the norm and self-tying shoes completely eliminate tripping on laces.
Caroline Montgomery (’18) said, “When the movie was produced in 1989, the predictions for 2015 were probably realistic for their time. Of course, we know now that flying cars and hoverboards aren’t very practical.”
According to http://blogs.wsj.com, there are five ways you should have celebrated what has been dubbed as Back to the Future Day.
- Start saving for a real hoverboard.
- Drink a Pepsi Perfect.
- Wear your pockets inside out.
- Play Wild Gunman.
- Root for the Cubs.
A hoverboard has recently been created by the car company Lexus using magnets and superconductors to defy gravity. Also, Pepsi sold a limited version of Pepsi Perfect to the first 6500 fans in honor of Back to the Future Day.
According to http://www.flixster.com, a few theaters such as, Regal Palladium Stadium 14 and Cinemark Brassfield Cinema 10, showed Back to the Future one time only on that Wednesday night. Many people flooded to the movie theater for this special event.
No matter how you celebrated, Back to the Future Day will be remembered for years to come. The amazing inventions of the fictitious 2015 may not be a reality, but Back to the Future will always be a family favorite.
