Well, guess what? We’ve got another one of those that’s right around the corner: October 21, 2015. That’s the date that young Marty McFly—rocking those classic Nike Air Mag sneakers—traveled to 1985 in Back to the Future II. And while flying cars haven’t come to pass yet, some of the other advances the film predicted apparently have:
But if there is one Back to the Future II breakthrough that’s more exciting than floating skateboards, it’s this:
That’s right. Pepsi Perfect. In honor of Marty McFly’s arrival date, Pepsi will start offering bottles of Pepsi Perfect through online sales for a limited time. Only 6,500 bottles will be available (for now, at least), each one coming in its own special case. (We keep all of our soft drinks in a special case, don’t you?) The 16.9 oz. bottle will not have a $50 price tag like the one Marty drank in the film, but instead will go for the much more sensible rate of $20.15 (get it?).
As for the soda itself, it will be…exactly the same as all other Pepsi. Why mess with perfection, right?
Pepsi will also be hosting a Back to the Future II-themed panel at New York Comic Con this month, featuring the infamous DeLorean, a recreated Café ’80s, and a Wild Gunman arcade. The first 200 fans who show up each day dressed as Marty McFly will get Pepsi Perfect of their own for free. So if you’ve got an itch for your own futuristic pop, head on down to the Jacob Javits Center October 8th through 11th. Just be sure to watch out for this guy.
