Happy Back to the Future Day! It’s officially the day Doc Brown and Marty McFly travel to in Part II!
You’re bound to see plenty of fun stuff on the internet today about it, but Toyota stepped it up a notch for their commercial promoting garbage powered cars by actually getting Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox to star!
In the video, which you can watch below, the stars play themselves as they meet an aeromechanical engineer who has been picked by Toyota to show off his project: turning garbage into energy and fuel for cars a la Mr. Fusion.
Toyota really packs the nostalgia with a punch, from Power of Love to Alan Silvestri’s iconic score and lots of familiar sights. Most exciting, though, is just seeing Lloyd and Fox together again as they talk about the movie and play along well. I dare you not to smile at the end when Fox tells Lloyd to give us a “Great Scott!” and he does.
Plus you’ve got to be excited about the science behind this all. There’s plenty Back to the Future got right, and it’s a joy seeing the people inspired by these movies going out and trying to change the world.
Turning garbage into fuel may not be easily accessible right now, but you can at least get your own Mr. Fusion replica!
