Police in Queensland recently released a report, stating that officers were called to attend to a traffic crash.
The incident, occurring near a cinema in Mount Isa, involved a silver sedan crashing into a power pole. At the scene, 17-year-old man, who kept an expired license, was charged. A loss of power was suffered by the Mount Isa Cinema.
While the contents of this statement may seem like an everyday scenario for an everyday police station, today was definitely no ordinary day for police in Queensland, Australia, otherwise known for the day as the Mount Isa Hoverboard Unit.
Ring a bell? Here's what the report said next:
"Investigations into the vehicle and what a flux capacitor is, are ongoing."
All right, so even police in Queensland are on board (literally) for "Back to the Future" Day. This satire is but one of many tributes that pay homage to the comic science fiction film on Oct. 21, 2015, the day that Marty McFly and Doc visit the future.
This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "the future is now."
The film was released in 1989, and earned over $300 million, making it the third-highest-grossing film of that year.
According to the Mount Isa Hoverboard Unit investigation, cinema owner Jodi Saunders said that the silver sedan driver, after he got out of the car, asked to have a Pepsi.
The silver sedan bears a far-too-close resemblance to the movie's flying DeLorean, which hit 88mph when it traveled to the future. The concept of the Hoverboard was immortalized by Marty.
"He also wanted to know when we would be playing Jaws 19," Saunders added. Fans may remember that the movie predicted the 19th installment of the "Jaws" series would be set for release in 2015.
A damaged power pole resulted in a power interruption to the area, including the town clock, which is no longer functioning.
"We have repairs underway to save the clock tower," said Mount Isa Mayor Tony McGrady.
That goes without saying, today's Internet win may just go to the Queensland police for proving that heroes, can and will be, geeks at heart.
