Doc is back!
Christopher Lloyd resumes his iconic role as Doc Brown for this HIGHlarious short film that promotes Nike's 2011 Nike MAG, a recreation of their shoe featured in Back to the Future II.
Nike is auctioning off 1500 pairs of the shoe to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's research. They don't power lace yet (check back in 2015), but it's still awesome to own a piece of film history, while supporting a great cause!
Although the auction started on September 8th, there are still 600 pairs left! Want yours? Click here to find out how to get them!
NBA star Kevin Durant co-stars along with Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader in the short. Do yourself a favor and check it out above!

Get ready for a BIG announcement from Nike!
After a year of speculation, the athletic company is holding a press conference tonight in Hollywood where they are expected to unveil Marty McFly's self-lacing shoes.
Those who were invited to the big event were called at midnight and flown to El Lay TODAY. When they arrived to their hotel rooms, a box was waiting in the room along with a recorded message from Doc Brown on an iPod shuffle. The message said:
“Welcome to Los Angeles. If my calculations are correct, over the next 24 hours you are about to see some SERIOUS SH*T!”
Inside the box was the actual invite, which read "IT’S ABOUT TIME…an unveiling that could change the course of time" along with a pair metal shield glasses.
Nike also left some mid 80′s candy, a throwback Pepsi and a copy of Back To The Future.

Technically, he won't be Doc Brown and he won't be joy-riding through time with Michael J. Fox, but Back To The Future alum Christopher Lloyd will play another time traveler in an upcoming 3D IMAX film Time, The Fourth Dimension!
Variety has reported that Lloyd will play "an eccentric professor who will explore and explain various dimensions with a focus on space-time." Sounds a whole lot like Doc Brown to us.
Co-Directors Jean-Jacques Mantello and Richard Gabai plan to make this film a visual treat with state-of-the-art 3D, other special effects, time-lapse footage, high-speed photography, and computer-generated imagery.
The film hits theaters in Spring of 2012, and while it will only be 45 minutes long, we're thinking it's going to be a visually stunning 45 minutes. Plus, it sort of has Doc Brown in it!
Are U excited to see Christopher Lloyd take on time travel once again?
