Just think, 30 years has passed but we still remember “Back to the future” movie! As we know, this memorable date is October 21, 2015– that day Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to the future in “Back to the Future Part II”.
So, to celebrate “Back to the Future Day” Toyota has released a five–minute commercial and has reunited Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the main characters of the movie trilogy.
The commercial called “Fueled by the Future” starts with a narration: “I’m a huge ‘Back to the Future‘ fan, especially all that crazy technology. That’s why I got into science and ended up getting my master’s in aero-mechanical engineering” – showing us a scene from the movie and then a man appears sitting on a sofa watching it on TV.
We recognized Mischa Pollack, a scientist who meets up in the diner with Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, two of his heroes, in the next scene of the commercial to show them how he could turn their trash into a fuel for a car, just like the Mr. Fusion model generator from the DeLorean in the movie.
After that Mischa returns to his Toyota pickup truck and travels throughout memorable places in the movie such as McFly’s home, Whittier Union High (Hill Valley High) and Courthouse Square collecting garbage to turn it into a fuel.
I got into my thoughts that in the movie the main character receives Toyota pickup truck as a gift from his parents. But now in the commercial we can see the modern version of Marty’s truck, a fuel-cell sedan powered by hydrogen (remember DeLorean powered by a lightning bolt? ). This truck titled Toyota “Mirai” (means “future” in Japanese) has been presented by Pallock to Fox and Lloyd in the final scene. Doc and Marty get impressed by seeing a new vehicle and they ask Mischa for a test drive!
Another interesting scene that caught my eye is when Fox an Lloyd are eating dinner and discussing which of the movie’s 2015 predictions have come true such as 3D printing, 3D movies and fingerprint technology. The funny element is when Lloyd admits to still using a fax machine! What is more, Fox says he is still really looking forward sneakers that lace themselves up!
I would also like to mention that Toyota commercial is accompanied by background music from the movie that made me quite nostalgic. Let’s watch and enjoy! 🙂
