Back to the future – but not quite yet.

Yesterday was NOT the day that Marty McFly went into the future with Doc Brown. This prank, where the dashboard image is photo-shopped to show the current date has happened many times. Total Film magazine pulled off a memorable hoax back in 2010 that fooled many into believing that they had reached the day McFly travelled to the future.

These days, you don’t even have to do your own photo-shopping, you can just visit this site and copy the image onto twitter. I felt compelled to write this after reading another post from WordPress blogger ‘Perceiving Life’ who had been deceived into thinking that yesterday was Back To The Future Day.

Should you forget the date, here is a link to a handy countdown clock.
