It’s only ever gonna be October 21st, 2015 once – a statement which is only true for those of us not in possession of a working Flux Capacitor – and so everyone’s been having a hell of a lot of fun with the Back to the Future day celebrations.
Never one to pass up the opportunity to make a good joke with the internet, all of Australia’s State Police forces got in on the act today in one for or another, making light-hearted gags in the name of a good lol.
Well, all except New South Wales, who took something of a wet blanket approach to proceedings.
But the other states? They’ve been having a blast all day long.
It began earlier this morning with the South Australian Police Hoverboard unit engaging in a pursuit of a group of rogue youths.
A short time after that, the Queensland Police Service‘s similar Hoverboard Unit was dispatched from Mount Isa to investigate an accident involving a silver DeLorean that was reportedly travelling at speeds of around 88mph.
Tasmanian Police then reported sightings of a similar speeding DeLorean…
…before the car in question was finally spotted and stopped in Victoria, with the young driver arrested.
And in an unrelated incident in Western Australia, two officers in police-issue Hilux managed to hit warp speed through the Northbridge Tunnel, setting off on a quest to prevent future atrocities from befalling them.
Bravo, pals. Well bloody played to all.
