White House petition seeks ‘National Back to the Future Day’

SHARE White House petition seeks ‘National Back to the Future Day’

It’s 2015.

“Back to the Future II” was set in 2015.

So naturally, there’s a White House petition focusing on the movie with the goal of declaring Oct. 21, 2015 — the date the movie is set in — “National Back to the Future Day.”

As White House petitions go, this one isn’t the worst. The Atlanta resident who started channels their inner Dr. Emmitt Brown, otherwise known as “Doc.”

“I was standing on the edge of my toilet hanging a clock, the porcelain was wet, I slipped, hit my head on the sink, and when I came to I had a revelation,” they write about starting the petition.

If you remember, that’s how Doc got the idea for the flux capacitor, which makes time travel possible.

Don’t worry though. They know Obama’s power has its limits and they’re not asking him to actually make time travel possible.

“We don’t even need plutonium, 1.21 gigawatts or a flux capacitor,” the petition states. “Just the Presidential Proclamation power.”

The petition has a long way to go to get the 100,000 signatures for a response, as it sits around 6,500.
