Dr. Emmett Brown: Oh my God, they found me. I don’t know how, but they found me. Run for it Marty!
Marty McFly: Who? Who?
Dr. Emmett Brown:Who do you think? The Libyans!
Twenty-six years after the Libyans gunned down Doc Brown for ripping off their plutonium, fans of “Back to the Future” will be interested to know the Argentineans have found him as well.
Two videos released late last week suggest the beloved time travel franchise never ended, and drive some attention to Argentina’s Garbarino brand in the process. Both depict the film’s bewildered mad scientist, played by original actor Christopher Lloyd, stepping from his time travel machine – a DeLorean sports car – moments after landing in the decidedly commercialized landscape of 2011 Buenos Aires. The very prominent backdrop? A Garbarino retail electronics store.
In the first, a girl speaking into her boyfriend’s camera is interrupted by the DeLorean’s blazing arrival in the background. The second shows the same scene as captured by a nearby security cam. As of Monday afternoon, the videos had collectively racked up more than 500,000 YouTube views.
The viral campaign was authorized by Universal Studios and production company Amblin Entertainment, according to BTTF.com, a Back to the Future fan site that supplied Garbarino with the DeLorean replica shown in the clips. The site is also hosting stills from the production shoot.
BTTF says the videos are the first two in a series for Garbarino, which was not immediately available for comment.
