Fans of the Back to the Future movie frandchise already know that today is the date — Oct. 21, 2015 — Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to the future in Back to the Future Part II. It should come as no surprise that some people might take to the streets in costume as one of the film's characters. That's exactly what Zachary Wood (B.F.A., animation) did, going to class in full McFly gear, complete with a hoverboard.
Students took to social media saying they'd spotted him around town. Even SCAD's Snapchat (scaddotedu) went on the hunt to find McFly. We found him outside Leopold's Ice Cream.
"I didn't expect anyone else would go out and do it, so I might as well go out and have some fun," Wood said. "I've made a lot of people happy today."
Since stepping out of his dorm room, people have been asking for photos. More than that, they've asked if his hoverboard really works.
Wood planned the costume for Halloween, but really got into it when he realized that 'Back to the Future Day' was Oct. 21 and SCAD's annual Masquerade Ball is this Friday, Oct. 23.
