    "Doc! What the fuck is a hashtag?!"

    Today, 21 October 2015, is Back to the Future Day – the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled forward to in Back to the Future Part II.

    People globally were quick to pay tribute to the movie franchise.

    I love Back To The Future Day morning. Running downstairs to see if a friendly white haired old man has left an alternate timeline.

    Some good…

    #本日の暇カプチーノ、『Back to the Future Part II』。

    …and some not so good.

    Westfield put up a sign banning the use of hoverboards.

    While Waterloo station went one step further and also banned time travel.

    Well played, @SW_Trains - well played. #BackToTheFutureDay #BackToTheFuture

    Irish bus companies didn't get the memo.

    @funjicey Hi Martin, what bus are you on, where is the bus now and what direction are you travelling?

    Jokes were made.

    “Are you Marty McFly? I’ve got something for you” *opens letter* “Emmet Brown would like you to join his professional network on LinkedIn”

    "Doc! What the f*ck is a hashtag?!" #BackToTheFuture

    Tomorrow is a special day for Sci-Fi fans. Why not visit Wakefield and be reminded what it was actually like in 1985? #VisitWakefield

    But for the most part people were just pissed about the technology we're still waiting on.

    IT'S OCTOBER 21ST, 2015 AND I'M PISSED THAT THESE HOVER BOARDS DON'T EXIST. #BackToTheFuture

    WHERE ARE THE HOVERBOARDS. WHERE ARE THE NIKES. WHERE IS THE SELF FITTING SELF DRYING JACKET. WHERE IS JAWS 19? #BackToTheFuture

    Although some predictions from the movie were pretty accurate.

    Back to the Future 2 was more prescient than we thought

    A lot of people were quick to spot the similarities between Donald Trump and Biff Tannen.

    Hoverboards ❌ Self lacing Nikes ❌ Biff Tannen used a time machine to make himself extremely rich #BackToTheFutureDay

    Here you go, folks... my contributing post for #BackToTheFuture Day.

    Scottish Twitter weighed in on the celebrations.

    Happy Back To The Future day! Get your maw pumped!

    And apparently police forces everywhere are massive fans of the movie.

    Marty McFly from Hill Valley was arrested in Melbourne today for disturbing the space-time continuum #BTTF #BTTF2015

    'Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads!' But 88 in a 30 gets you points & a fine in all timelines. #BTTF2015

    Driver stopped by @YRP this morning and issued ticket for Operate Vehicle With Flux Capacitor. #BackToTheFuture

    People predicted politicians would ruin the day…

    Prediction: Tory backbencher using #PMQs to make a #BackToTheFuture gag about Labour going back to the 1980s

    …and were proved correct.

    David Cameron made a #BackToFutureDay joke in #PMQs. Oh the ~banter~

    And then we all decided we'd had enough.

    Woke up 5 mins ago and already the #BackToTheFuture memes can fuck off thanks

    But on the bright side…

    Happy No More of that Fucking Fake Back to the Future Meme Day
