33 Back to the Future Homages

From Nike Delorean Dunks to Time Travelling Taxis

— December 1, 2012 — Pop Culture
These Back to the Future homages pay tribute to the classic 1985 film featuring an unsure high school student and a quirky, insane scientist.

The three film saga continued in 1989 with part two and then held off until 2002 for part three. The most frequent of Back to the Future homages comes in the form of the famed Delorean. Manifestations of the Delorean have popped up in many forms including a yellow New York taxi, model car size USB keys and infant assembled toy cars. Due to the ongoing influence of this classic film series, children that were born decades after the original film's release know the name Marty McFly (who was played by Michael J. Fox.)

We also see major Back to the Future homages in the form of sneakers modelled after McFly's futuristic sneakers.
