Watch: The Secrets of the Back to the Future Trilogy (1990) hosted by a young and sane Kirk Cameron


October 21, 2015 is Back to the Future Day. Today is the day that Marty and Doc Brown visited the future in Back to the Future Part II. And as we can see, 2015 is just as Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale envisioned it.

Banks are still open and there is no Google Doodle for Back to the Future Day, so don’t sweat it.

To celebrate the 90’s vision of the future, let’s go back in time 25 years for The Secrets of the Back to the Future Trilogy. Originally broadcast on TV, this behind-the-scenes VHS video for the Back to the Future trilogy is hosted by Kirk Cameron.

Don’t worry, this is happy-go-lucky Kirk Cameron of Growing Pains, not the crazy fundie Kirk Cameron he would grow up to become.

Seriously, the behind-the-scenes hoverboard footage is pretty awesome.

This special was written and directed by Peyton Reed. Yes, the guy who directed Bring It On, Down with Love, and Ant-Man.

Share your memories of Back to the Future in the comments.

Or you can share your memories of Kirk Cameron, if you wish.
