Great Scott! It's Back to the Future Day

Today is considered "Back to the Future Day."  Why?  Because when Doc Brown was setting the destination time on the car's dash monitor, the date read October 21, 2015, in the sequel of the movie.

Here are some things you can do today to celebrate 'Back to the Future Day':

  • Drive 88 miles an hour.  Um....well, maybe dream of it in your head while you're stuck in traffic.
  • ...............................................................
  • Watch "Back to the Future" on repeat.
  • ...............................................................
  • Yell, "GREAT SCOTT!" at everything and everyone.
  • ...............................................................
  • Take your picture standing in front of a clock tower.
  • ...............................................................
  • Drink lots of Pepsi and imagine ordering food from a teleprompter with Michael Jackson taking your order on it.

We love the 'Back to the Future' movies in our house.  Skylar loves the third one because it has a train in it, but I have to say that Mr. and I enjoy the original.  I remember being at our neighbor's house, the Fryars, when I first watched 'Back to the Future.'  I wasn't really tuned into the movie as much as I am now, but I have to say, the movie was pretty cool, even back then.  

Pepsi has been quoted as having a shortage of their Pepsi Perfect bottles for today.  We have been on a mad hunt to try and find one, bit alas we have not been successful at all in our scavenge.

Well, it seems that the only thing we've really gained in our world, according to 'Back to the Future' is the Pepsi bottles.  Of course, hoverboards would have been cool, and according to Yahoo Tech, it won't happen for awhile longer.  The closest we've come is a board with a small "rollerblade-type" ball under it while you balance on top. 

 As far as the other items shown on the sequel on the movies, the jacket was one that seemed to be impressive.  



There is a replica that you can purchase.  Of course, it doesn't dry you like the one in the movie, but the jacket is still pretty close to the original.  Halloween is coming too, so maybe a good Halloween costume idea?

A few other items from the movie include, the hat, the hoverboard, and the almanac.
   

....The shoes, the movie poster, and a license plate.

    

 And don't forget Huey Lewis and the News - Back in Time......



Hope you enjoy your 'Back to the Future Day' and check out some of your local movie theaters that are having a one day showing of the movies.  It seems the ones around me are all showing them in honor of the movie and celebration today.  Check out Toyota's recreation of Marty McFly's Truck.
