Great Scott! The actual actors behind Marty McFly and Doc Brown rode up to the stage of a Jimmy Kimmel Live taping in a shiny silver DeLorean. And it was pretty amazing.

"That's heavy," Michael J. Fox as Marty said as Kimmel explained to the time travelers what has happened in the last 30 years since they zipped forward to Oct. 21, 2015, the exact date they traveled to in the Back to the Future Part II film in the trilogy. They learned about how people watch TV shows on their phones while they're on the toilet, that Johnny Carson isn't around anymore, and that we've got "hoverboards" that aren't really hoverboards. We even got a Huey Lewis cameo. There's also talk of the Biff Tannen/Donald Trump presidential bid, Cronuts, and well, selfies.

Look who rolled up in a DeLorean tonight... #BackToTheFuture #KimmelinBrooklyn

"What the hell have you guys been doing for 30 years?" Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) asks Kimmel. Good question, Doc, good question.
