It's Back to the Future Day! 21st October 2015 is the date Doc Brown and Marty McFly travel to in 1989's Back to the Future 2. It's the year Hollywood told us we'd get hoverboards, trainers that tie themselves, and leads that walk dogs. We didn't get any of those things, but we did get this:

A recreation of the iconic Back to the Future parking lot scene in Grand Theft Auto 5, complete with Doc Brown, Marty McFly and Einstein the dog. There's that DeLorean, too, speeding toward 88 miles per hour, before vanishing into the future (or is the past?), leaving a trail of fire in its wake.

YouTube Channel GTA Series Videos used the Rockstar Editor and a couple of Back to the Future-themed mods to help create the scene, which layers on top dialogue from the film. It's pretty cool!

One thing that occurred to me while watching the video: why does Doc Brown drive the DeLorean right at himself and Marty? What if the experiment failed? They would have died!
