Great Scott! It's finally here: The day you can share the "Back to the Future" date on social media and not be wrong.
Since 2013, a Tumblr account has been tricking people by automatically generating a new screenshot that shows that day's date captioned with "Today is the day Marty McFly goes to the future!" According to the notes, a couple hundred people fell for it every day.
For the last 26 years, people have been comparing the present to "Back to the Future Part II's" vision of the future. No, we don't have hoverboards. (Yet.) And people don't get fired via fax, like an adult Marty McFly did in the film.
But we do have video calling, Pepsi Perfect, and a blustering casino owner and real estate magnate edging us toward a full-blown dystopia. In a turn of events that was played as a gimmick even in the movie, the Cubs are actually well on their way to winning the World Series.
