Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock or not looking at the Internet all year, you are very aware, by this point, that Back to the Future day—October 21, 2015 (the day that Marty McFly arrives in Back to the Future Part II)—is quickly approaching. In fact, it’s next Wednesday. So, while you’re sitting at home debating which installment is the best, drinking your Pepsi Perfect and sitting on your seldom-used hoverboard, just take a moment to realize Back to the Future is now thirty years old, that you are now old, and that everyone who was involved with making the film franchise is now older, too.
Need more proof of time ravaging everyone’s once youthful looks? Take a gander at Toyota‘s newest commercial featuring both stars from the Back to the Future series: Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. Sitting a diner booth, just like two regular middle-aged guys, the real-life Marty McFly and Doc Brown casually talk about what the second installment got right about life in 2015. 3-D films? Check. Fingerprint technology? Got it. Robot dog walkers and “fashionable” two-tie business looks? Not so much.
As most catch-up sessions go with good friends, this one devolves into them making fun of each other, or really, Fox teasing Lloyd for still having a fax machine in this day and age. Watch the precious commercial below and keep an eye out for McFly on October 21. Don’t bother him though, he’ll be taking care of some really heavy stuff to help his kids.
