Michael J. Fox is already a generation’s hero — and I’m not even talking about his tireless work funding Parkinson’s research through his Michael J. Fox Foundation. Nope, I’m referring to Marty McFly, that opposite-of-Alex-P-Keaton time traveling icon from the ’80s, that 1.21 gigawatt fueled sex symbol, that Johnny B.

Michael J. Fox Goes Back To The Future… Again, And Again, And Again
Well, this year, the original Back to the Future turns 25 years old, and with clock tower intact after a major Universal Studios 2008 fire, there’s celebrating to be done. For it’s silver anniversary, Fox stepped out from behind his advocacy post and slipped into the DeLorean DMC-12 that rocketed him to pop culture immortality, recreating the original trailer for BttF. Below, both versions, to satisfy your nostalgia and fuel your love of MJF.
