Oct. 21, 2015 is a special day for all “Back to the Future” fans. It is the exact date that Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, time-travelled to in the 1989 film. Fans around the world had their own unique ways to celebrate.

Time reports that Doc Brown, played by Christopher Lloyd, the eccentric scientist and inventor of the time machine, provided a message to fans who may have been worried that technology today is not as advanced as the movie creators believed three decades ago.

“Yes, it is different than we all thought. But don’t worry, it just means your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has,” Doc Brown said in a video in the official Facebook page of the film series.

Australia featured a spoof police press release to celebrate “Back to the Future Day.” Police in Queensland stated that they recently deployed their hoverboard unit. According to the spoof statement, a silver DeLorean travelling at 88 mph hit a pole and caused a power outage and the town clock to stop. The city’s police force were shown riding hoverboards toward the area of the accident.

BBC News reports that the incident is the same vital moment in the second movie in the “Back to the Future” series, when the two main characters travel forward in time. The various descriptions of the incident paid homage to “Back to the Future Day.”

The Pepsi Max Crew V8 Supercars team also celebrated “Back to the Future Day” via a special car conversion project. During the Castrol Gold Coast 600 race event on Oct. 23-25, the #6 Pepsid Max Crew PRA Ford of the team will feature a unique stainless steel design similar to the DeLorean time machine. Drivers Cameron Waters and stand-in Russell Ingall will showcase gullwing doors, thrusters, a flux capacitor and a Mr Fusion to achieve the look.

Pepsi has been involved in the “Back to the Future” films. In the second movie, Marty McFly ordered the soda.

Time Edwards, Prodrive Racing Team Principal, said that the project is one of the best activations that he witnessed in his close to three decades in the motorsport business.
