Bob and George

College Humor

  • The site has a video titled Back to The Future Sex Scenes. It was a parody depicting Marty having sexual relations with his mom and going back several times to prevent it.

FireWire (icon)

  • The icon looks like the Flux Capacitor.


  • For April Fools' Day 2008, Google's Gmail advertised a hoax application called Gmail Custom Time, which allows a user to send an email back in time to by several hours or even days. To explain how it would resolve issues of causality, the Gmail ad said that it would utilize an e-flux capacitor. It also explained that had it allowed the user to send Gmail to a time before Gmail existed, it would be like hanging out with one's parents before they were born. [1]
  • In April 2014, Google introduced a feature to the Street View portion of their Google Maps site that allows the user to view streets from other time periods, effectively allowing the user to 'travel back in time' through Street View. The peg-man that controls the user's position was given a redesign to resemble Emmett Brown holding a clock.

How it Should Have Ended


  • On February 10, 2011, the late game reviewer JewWario posted an episode of his show You Can Play This! focusing on the game Super Back to the Future Part II. The episode has JewWario sending a message to the past version of Doc Brown (again played by Doug Walker) with the help of the modern version, telling Brown about the game and offering an explanation on how to play it despite the language barrier. The episode starts with a closing comment on the game from Episode 94 of The Angry Video Game Nerd.

Nostalgia Critic

In the opening, the Nostalgia Critic explains that, though the film is one of the most-requested by fans, he can't review it because it was made in 2003, and therefore falls behind his cut-off date. However, Doc Brown (played by Doug Walker, who also plays the Nostalgia Critic) appears and takes the Critic into the future so he can review the film. The time travel sequence uses footage from the original Back to the Future.

Sandra and Woo

  • Comic strip 0798: Sandra and her father Richard view a televised interview where a Sony executive mentions the details of how the Back To The Future reboot will be made accessible to modern audiences such as:
    • Marty teaches his parents about social media and phone apps instead of Rock'N'Roll.
    • Doc will go for clean energy as plutonium won't be used as the fuel for the DeLorean, which instead runs on friendship and tolerance.

The Annoying Orange

  • There is an episode called "Back to the Fruiture".
  • In the episode "Tough Enough", when a durian called Spike tries to correct Orange that he is a durian, Orange thought he said that he is a DeLorean and says to go back to the future before Spike says that he's a durian and that he's an exotic flavourful fruit, not a time-travelling car. Also, Spike mentions Clint Eastwood.
