The post shows a still image from the scene in _Back to the Future II_ in which Doc and Marty set the DeLorean’s dials to a day some 25 years in the future. The image circulating on social media shows the date as June 27, 2012.
That might sound plausible, as long as you didn’t fall for the exact same hoax two years ago. Back then, Internet pranksters altered the date to read July 5, 2010.
For those still holding out hope of a future filled with hoverboards and self-lacing Nikes, the actual date shown in the film is still more than three years away: Oct. 21, 2015. http://sswi.me/Mqr7za via @slate
