Grab your hoverboard, October 21, 2015 has arrived!
For those of you who aren’t aware by now (it’s been all over the interwebs), today is “Back to the Future” Day. October 21, 2015 is the date that Marty McFly travels to in Back to the Future II and I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I saw this in the theater in 1989! 2015 seemed so far away and since I was 10, I was really just excited about the limited-edition sunglasses they were giving away at Pizza Hut. (I wish I still had those…I bet they are hot on eBay.)
Last year the show A to Z gave a great nod to Back to the Future II with a fun cameo by Leah Thompson, and this SNL skit of screen tests for the movie featuring famous 80’s actors is one of my favorite skits. These films are pure childhood nostalgia for a lot of people, myself included. A guy in one of my acting classes a few years ago said he was late because he had to get the Flux Capacitor fixed on his car…almost no one got it and it made me giggle so much.
If you’re feeling nostalgic, there are several ways to celebrate the day and this article has 10 great ideas.
(I am seriously craving Pizza Hut now. Well done, movie marketing!)
