As someone who incorporated Back to the Futureinto his own wedding (I had the band play "Earth Angel" and "Johnny B. Goode" back-to-back at midnight), I can see why there's just something about this film that tugs at our nostalgic heartstrings to the point where we want to make it a part of our most important (and memorable) life events. A guy by the name of Corey Goldfeder took the whole thing up one notch, though, when he used Back to the Future to propose to his girlfriend in one of the most creative and unique ways I've ever seen.
Goldfeder's plan was pretty intricate. First, he spent 15 hours using a digital camera, a make-shift green screen and a 30-day free trial of Pinnacle Studio software to edit himself into Back to the Future as Marty during a scene opposite Doc. He then spent a few minutes talking to Doc, as himself, about whether or not he should propose, cleverly working Doc's real responses from the movie into their conversation. Cute, right? But Goldfeder didn't stop there ...
Oh no, he then convinced his girlfriend that there was a Michael J. Fox retrospective taking place at a theater downtown where they were screening Back to the Future. In cahoots with the theater, they put up signage out front making it look like the event and screening were indeed real, and Goldfeder snagged about 20 friends to show up as audience members. He then showed up with his gal, the lights went down, Back to the Future began as planned, and then when they got to the selected scene Marty McFly was instantly replaced by Corey Goldfeder, who, after a little chit chat with Doc, turned it over to himself to do the actual proposal. And of course she said yes.
