CATEGORIES 'Fone Finds


Bob Gale, co-creator of the 'Back to the Future' trilogy, has been kind to Moviefone and Cinematical lately; he gave a great interview recently about the films' legacy.

But we never knew he was so Internet-savvy and cool until last night at the 'Back to the Future' 25th Anniversary party in New York City.

We'll explain: Back in 2006, Chocolate Cake City, a sketch comedy troupe from Boston's Emerson College, created a 'Back to the Future' trailer recut to look like 'Brokeback Mountain' starring Marty McFly and Doc Brown. Thus, 'Brokeback to the Future' was born.

The homoerotic re-imagining of the 1985 classic went viral, making it onto MTV and the Huffington Post and into Entertainment Weekly. (Full disclosure: this blogger joined Chocolate Cake City during the mayhem and was a member until 2009.)

So naturally, asking Gale if he'd seen 'Brokeback to the Future' was a risk that needed taking. And it paid off! Gale said he loves the parody and that he regularly sends it out to friends.

Great Scott! What a good sport!
