Marty McFly is going back to the real future in crazy Back to the Future DeepFake videos. The iconic character has set his course for the year 2015 and he’s a bit out of place. Michael J. Fox played McFly over the course of three movies and fans have been wanting a Back to the Future 4 for years now. It will more than likely never happen and the same goes for a reboot. Franchise writer Bob Gale has said he and co-writer/director Robert Zemeckis would have to be dead in order for that to happen.
Thankfully, Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis are still around. But there are still Back to the Future fans who would love to see Marty McFly return at some point. In substitution of that, we now have the Back to the Real Future DeepFake videos, which continue the adventures of McFly in 2015. Barrack Obama is president, which is a trip for the character coming from the 1980s. He also trips out on Sharknado, but doesn’t really react to the computers.
We see Marty McFly head to a hipster coffee joint where he’s not sure what to order, so he just asks for something with caffeine, only to look at a massive menu for espresso. The DeepFake tech in the videos is charming at best, though the goal is pretty lofty. Most DeepFake videos we see are on the shorter side. These Back to the Future videos are over 3 minutes long and there are three of them. YouTuber Pacto Copernico is the man behind the videos and brought on a friend to do a Michael J. Fox impression, which wavers, but gets the point across.
With some more time and effort, these Back to the Real Future videos could be huge. The Back to the Future franchise is still big business and there is a real hunger Back to the Future 4. With that being said, should these videos get enough attention, they run the risk of getting shut down for copyright infringement. So, it might be best for all parties involved to keep these videos on the loose side with an impression that everybody knows is not the real Michael J. Fox.
Back to the Future is one of the franchises that captured the imagination of millions of people around the world. Even Avengers: Endgame mentions Back to the Future, and it’s the highest grossing movie of all time. They run their time travel a little differently in that particular movie, but Bob Gale was thrilled to get a mention in such a massive blockbuster. Back to the Future 4 is probably never going to happen, no matter how bad the fans and Christopher Lloyd want it to. So, while we wait for another reunion, you can check out the Back to the Real Future’s DeepFake videos and watch Marty McFly navigate 2015.
