Sometimes the news cycle delivers the kind of gift that no talented Youtube mashup artist can refuse. So it is with Donald Trump’s latest bid for the US Republican presidential nomination.
The very clever James Montalbano has discovered that Trump’s announcement of his intention to contest the Republican primaries (again), aligns perfectly with Back To the Future II’s bleak depiction of 2015. In his very funny 'Trump To The Future' montage, Montalbano supplants one boorish billionaire with another, so that when Marty McFly flashes forward 30 years, he encounters a seedy Hill Valley dominated by Trump (rather than McFly family foe, Biff Tannen).
In a nice footnote, Montalbano also points out that Trump’s presidential aspirations traverse the 30-year arc of the Back To The Future films: “Contrary to popular belief, the 2015 Donald Trump presidential campaign actually extends all the way back to 1985.”
