In Back To The Future II, Marty McFly travels to 2015 and finds a world in complete and utter chaos. At the time, I was a young kid still trying to wrap his head around the ideas of both time travel and personal consequence, and, honestly, it was one of the scarier things I had ever seen on screen. Of course, I’m a big brave man now and that sort could never scare me, right?
WRONG. And, turns out, all it takes is a little dash of modern reality.
In his brilliant mashup, Trump to the Future, YouTuber James Montalbao combines a classic scene from Back To The Future II with Donald Trump’s declaration that “the American Dream is dead.” And while Marty’s reaction to the news that The Donald is running for President seems appropriate, I’d like to think I wouldn’t be nearly as scared. However, history has already proven I am.
