It’s Finally ‘Back to the Future’ Day!

In 1989’s Back to the Future Part II, Marty McFly, Doc Brown and Marty’s girlfriend Jennifer (who mysteriously turned into Elisabeth Shue) travel from 1985 to the far off future year of 2015. Specifically, they travel to today – October 21st 2015.

And I really mean it — it’s today. I know that dozens of photoshopped images have popped up over the last few years to try and lie to you, but honest to god, we finally got there. Don’t believe me? Check the trailer.

And sure, we don’t have flying cars, self tying shoes, Hoverboards that work outside of specialized tracks, clothes that resize themselves or cold fusion… but we do all have big screen TVs, so that counts for something.

(I originally had a line here about the Cubs, but they aren’t doing so well…)

So sit back, pop open a Pepsi Perfect (if you got one and feel like destroying the collector’s value) and enjoy living in the knowledge that we’re living in the future.

…I still kinda wish I had a hoverboard.
