In case you haven’t already heard, today is “Back to the Future” Day, the same exact day Marty McFly visited the future version of his hometown Hill Valley in “Back to the Future Part II.” To celebrate accordingly, watch a fun new video essay entitled “Welcome to Hill Valley” that simultaneously depicts Marty’s hometown across all four of its time periods, courtesy of Fandor Keyframe and Joel Bocko.
Proving that the more things change, the more they stay the same, the video brings us back and back and back again to the visually repetitive fight scenes and chase scenes that play out in the amazingly consistent town of Hill Valley across 1885, 1955, 1985 and 2015. The video is already filled to the brim with deja vu moments, but everything is even more eerily familiar when watched on top of each other. As Biff says, “There’s something very familiar about all of this.”
Experience the deja vu for yourself by watching the cleverly edited tribute above or on Vimeo.
