Holy Shit, Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly In The Fading Photograph From Back To The Future

Honestly, when footage of Eric Stoltz in Back to the Future surfaced yesterday, it seemed kind of shruggable to me. What I mean is, Back to the Future with Michael J. Fox is really good? And it’s 2010? I’m an adult with adult responsibilities, and my landlord doesn’t accept payment in footage of Eric Stoltz in Back to the Future. LIFE IS FOR THE LIVING, YOU GUYS. And yet, for some reason, Eric Stoltz in the fading photograph from Back to the Future is blowing my fucking mind. It probably shouldn’t. We have Photoshop now, or whatever. And my landlord also doesn’t accept payment in JPGs of Eric Stoltz in the fading photograph from Back to the Future. And yet. The fading photograph! Literally one of the most important photographs ever taken. THE ENTIRE FABRIC OF SPACE AND TIME DEPENDS ON IT. (Via Dave Itzkoff.)
