A parody trailer has taken Doc and Marty out of the "wild west" of barn dances and manure fights into the sex-fuelled Pleasure Dome that is Westworld. However, "Back to the Westworld" does more than just promise Marty the company of gold-coated sexbots: It totally makes Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen a host.

Video: In my head, we screwed it all up. Our reality is an alternate timeline because our hoverboards don't actually hover. There are people out there living in the real timeline where Back to the Future-style hoverboards actually do exist and do hover and are probably made in a factory that pumps 'em out like in this totally awesome animation.

Ever since Back to the Future II, people have wanted shoes with power laces. Well, it's happened. Nike has finally put power lacing in real shoes. In real life. As in, you'll actually be able to buy them. And you'll never have to tie a shoelace again. The Nike HyperAdapt 1.0 will be the first real Nike shoe to implement the adaptive lacing tech and it's supposed to work just like it did for Marty McFly. Put them on and it magically tightens up around your feet.

Image Cache: We don't know if Doc Brown worked on this F/A-18C Hornet, seen here taking off. We don't know if it had a Flux capacitor on board. We also don't know if it was only travelling at 88 miles per hour when this photo was taken, although it seems unlikely. However, we do know it looks like it's leaving burning tire tracks in its wake, just like Doc Brown's time-travelling DeLorean did in the Back to the Future movies, and we do know this looks awesome.

Video: We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn't happen in real life. We failed. But! We can totally make things right by changing the past, as in re-editing Back to the Future II to include things that actually happened in the year 2015. It actually works out quite well, as PistolShrimps shows, instead of a Jaws shark hologram eating Marty, it would be a Jurassic World dinosaur. And instead of Biff being the most powerful buffoon in the world, it would be... Donald Trump.

Thanks a lot, everyone. You've taken a perfectly fun movie reference and turned it into a sinister circle jerk, manned by money-hungry marketers. I loved the Back to the Future trilogy when I was a kid. Now, I just want to strap fake hoverboards to my chest and drown myself in overpriced Pepsi Perfect while I pray for a pair of Nike self-tying shoes and a self-driving Delorean.

When Doc and Marty travelled forward in time from 1985 and landed the DeLorean on October 21, 2015, they found a world of flying cars, hover boards and 3D holographic technology.

Some of the technologies predicted are now a reality of sorts, but the world of Back to The Future II is not quite what we see around us today. The movie makers didn’t envisage the abundance of smartphones and other technologies that dominate our lives today. So let’s see if the tech experts of today are any better.

It’s Back To The Future Day this week. October 21, 2015 marks the exact day Doc Emmet Brown and Marty McFly exploded into our space-time in Back To The Future: Part II. They warped in above Hill Valley, California at 4:29pm if you want to get really specific.

The film serves as a futurist time capsule of what we (or at least Spielberg) thought the year 2015 would be like. Let’s take a look at what went right and what went wrong.

Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time travelled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don't have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and boards that people call hoverboards but definitely do not hover.
