Playboy Back To The Future Tribute

The past month has been chock full of nostalgic trips down memory lane for the movie Back to the Future, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. (Although, shouldn’t it be more like “Memory lanes? Where we’re going we don’t need memory lanes.” Get it? You get it.) So, the cast has been reunited on morning talk shows and recreated teaser trailers, casting test footage has leaked, and just in general the whole thing has been one giant Internet Meme. But I think we can ALL agree that the most fitting and important tribute to a beloved time travel comedy for children made in 1985 is a NUDE PLAYBOY SPREAD (via JoBlo). Uh, no duh. If anything, it’s TOO appropriate and TOO fitting and makes TOO much sense. Don’t be such a McFly! Just kidding. What the fuck is going on here? This is almost as weird and inappropriate as last October when Marge Simpson was on the cover of Playboy. What was THAT all about? What is THIS all about? And why is the naked chick on a hoverboard riding through fucking OUTER SPACE? Like, it’s one thing to do a nude tribute to a movie that does not require a nude tribute, but at the very least, shouldn’t the tribute be an actual tribute, regardless of the nudity? I guess it’s hard to concentrate. “In order to truly honor this pop cultural landmark, we should focus on the…whoa! Tits! PUT IT IN SPACE, I DON’T KNOW!”

  1. “Great Rack!” -Doc Brown

  2. 1.21 Jigglewatts!

  3. Articles?…Where we’re going we don’t need articles.

  4. Chuck Berry approves.

  5. In the meantime, Playboy completely passes over the 25th anniversary of The Color Purple. Racists.

  6. If they really want to honor the series properly, the inside of the issue should be a 1950 – 2000 sports almanac. Ooh La La!

  7. “You mean you have to use your hands?”
    “That’s like a baby’s toy!”

  8. Gabe, they are basically mathematicians of awesome, don’t criticize. Tits (awesome)+space(awesome)=awesomer.

    It’s pretty much the only skill they have, don’t take it away from them.

  9. All of the pictures were shot by Libyan terrorists.

  10. apparently in the future, women no longer have nipples.

  11. Next month is the 25th anniversary of the debut of Calvin and Hobbes. Be afraid, be very afraid…

  12. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    I think I’m turning Winwood. Excuse me.

  13. It’s funny to think that porn in an actual printed magazine is probably now more retro than Back to the Future.

  14. This is fine, but Hustler’s tribute to the 25th anniversary of Rambo: First Blood Part II is in bad taste.

  15. SO IS Playboy PLAGERIZING the internet? I don’t WANNA have to GOOGLE for the truth.

  16. Bitchin’ airbrush space background…

    Wait, there’s a lady in the picture?

  17. Hugh. Hugh. It’s Marvin – your cousin, Marvin HEFNER. You know that weak and hackneyed premise in an attempt to appeal to a rapidly aging and diminishing audience for your outmoded magazine you’re looking for? Well, look at this.

  18. Hey Playboy you bozo! Hoverboards don’t work in outer space.

    UNLESS YOU GOT POWER!

  19. NSFW? Gabe, you’re beginning to sound just like my mother.

  20. “She WAS pretty”

    - Grandpa Winwood (1901-1972)

  21. I will use this opportunity to repost one of my favorite Videogum photoshops ever (courtesy of Notsewfast):

  22. Because nothing says sexy like Christopher Lloyd.

  23. Back to the Future. SO hot right now.

  24. Only 50 bucks! what kind of man read Playboy!? http://bit.ly/9h224a Monster Team ASSemble!!

  25. True story: Every year on Halloween, I work at the Playboy Mansion. My job is to scare girls. Usually this means I wear a mask and stand very still in a row of mannequins dressed like Jason and Micheal Meyers and zombies or what have you, and the girls pause at each one and debate whether it’s real or not, and when they pause at me, looking right into my eyes, all I have to do is not blink. One of them will often say “I think this one is real” and another will say “No, it’s fake too,” and that’s the best time for me to lunge and roar. Then girls in high heels and body paint go plunging backward into a wall or bush, shrieking. Sometimes you can actually knock them over with startlement if they have really been hitting the open bar. But once they recover, they often say “That was great!” and they want their picture with me. So I am in the digital photo library of many a Playboy girl. Except, in all of these photos, I am wearing a mask — so I could be anyone. And there I stand each time waiting for drunken Belly Dancer #17 to figure out how her camera works, thinking, “This is going to be a stupid picture. It is Sexy Nurse #39 next to Guy Obscured In Latex Mask. You basically will have a photo of yourself standing next to a store-bought product.” Memories, though!

  26. No pics of Lea Thompson look-alike? Oedipal fail playboy.

  27. Followup story, and this is why my girlfriend is awesome. We are going to be apart from each other on Halloween, but last night, she said, “You should wear a sexy costume so all the girls are into you.” We bandied over how anything can be made Halloween sexy, even Sexy Gandhi (except maybe no Sexy Mohammad), and then she said: “I know! Go as a frog, wearing a crown. You will get so many kisses.” I liked this idea, but I wasn’t sure how to actually make it, so she elaborated: “Easy. First, skin a frog, and wear the skin. Then get a crown. Then, get a bunch of flies, and tie a string to each fly. Wear those. And once in a while, eat one.”

    Kissing line forms to the right, LADIES.

  28. Flux Capicitor? That’s not a joke, but even side boob makes it hard to think.
