You know, I had started to think there was something funny going on…but I never imagined that there was a Back to the Future hoax. Apparently some people know about this already, but a lot don’t. It all goes with this image:
I’m sure you’ve seen it. It’s all about supposedly ‘today’ being the day that Marty McFly traveled to in Back the the Future II. Often, it is in the context of demanding hoverboards.
However, there is another meme out there. One that debunks the above as a hoax. I found all that because a friend posted the image above today with today’s date. I thought back and was sure I’d seen this in the past with a previous date. Multiple times. I checked, and I was correct. People keep putting this out with different dates on it, different dates that are always ‘today’s’ date.
However, the date that Marty actually travels to in Back to the Future II is October 21, 2015 (check wikipedia if you trust them, but they are correct regardless). If you see this image with any other date, it’s a hoax. Scientists still have some time to come up with hoverboards.
I just can’t believe someone would make a hoax about this. Or, more accurately, so many people. Oh well, it’s not like this really matters anyway. I just thought it was kind of a weird thing for people to do.
