Toyota is Fueled by the Future – A BTTF Story

Toyota released a commercial commemorating the thirty-year anniversary in honor of Back to the Future Day. If you live in New Jersey, like most of us at Nerdopotamus do, you’ll be psyched to hear where they filmed the detailed short film.

As reported by, Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd hung out on location at the Bendix Diner in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. The promo’s focal point is fuel tech and the new Toyata Mirari, designed by Mischa Pollack, long time fan of Back to the Future. Toyota’s new sucker car isn’t nuclear, but impressively uses hydrogen fuel cells for power and efficiency. Pollack shared a few words on YouTube about the experience, provided below.


“Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have the opportunity to work with two of my heroes on such a once-in-a-timeline project. It was a great privilege that Toyota let me part of this tremendous campaign and I wish them the best of luck in moving this technology forward. In honor of the film and its influence on my life, I’ve decided to review some BttF tech and see how far we’ve come. Enjoy!!!”


Back to the Future continuously pours its influence throughout popular culture daily. Toyota understands that strides in technology must be met day in and day out. Then there’s Mischa Pollack, a person who combined his passion for cinematic arts and science to lay the blueprints for such fine innovation.
