Welcome to 2012.

2012.  Time to reset your vantage point based on Back to the Future.

Marty McFly is travelling back in time to 1982 now, three years before the movie was released.  He is travelling in a … I don’t know… Chevy Volt?  Doc Brown is incredulous upon hearing the name of the President of the United States.  The odd thing about the “You know that new sound you’re looking for –” That’s been parodied by The Simpsons … The Family Guy apparently … Hot Tub Time Machine apparently used the same premise for a Black Eyed Peas song played anachronistically.

And, yes, I am finding that the 80s are the new 50s.

In 2042, Marty walks into a retro cafe that plays Lady Gaga ad naseum.  Hoverboards are still the stuff of sci-fi.
