October 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


OK, so we know Future Day is over now, but the Back To The Future goodness just keep coming. From Jimmy Kimmel of all places.

First up, Marty and the Doc arrive on Kimmel’s set, shocked to be in 2015 again and worried that it’s another alternate reality… and sucks. No hover boards?! No flying cars!? What have we been doing for 30 years!!?

(Continues after video)

Also on Kimmel’s show, Micheal J Fox revealed his new pair of Nike’s self-lacing Air Mags which, not only are the same as the technology in Back To The Future Pt II (isn’t this a bootstrap paradox as The Doctor (Who) called it?)… anyway, the shoes are being suctioned off to raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation, helping to conduct research into Parkinson’s Disease. Fox himself has one of only pairs for now, but more will be auctioned off in 2016.

The shoes can be seen below and we reckon this is fantastic news and a great cause.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
