DWP Press Office: celebrates Back to the Future Day

Today is Back to the Future Day. 21 October 2015 is the date Marty McFly and Doc Brown time-hopped to in the 1989 blockbuster Back to the Future II. Here's how brands, including Toyota, Pepsi and PlayStation, are marking the occasion.

All eyes will be on the brands that made a star appearance in the 1980/90s film franchise, including Pepsi with its vitamin-enhanced version, called Perfect, and Nike and the yet to be created self-lacing sneakers.

Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd, who played Marty McFly and Dr Emmett Brown respectively, have already discussed the movies' predictions and whether they became a reality this year in a film by Toyota.

Also marking the event are Universal Pictures with a spoof movie teaser trailer for Jaws 19, and Mercedes-Benz's short film saying thank you to inventor Doc Brown for his influence on the automotive brand's engineers.
