Michael J. Fox

CelebriGum presents "26 Year Old Reference Theater"!

 Things are going well for Michael J. Fox on 53rd Street, until . . . 


. . . ZAPP!  He's blasted with 1.21 gigawatts of electricity!

Get the reference?  

If you don't, Google it.  I don't have time to teach you mid-80's pop culture.

You do know what Google is, don't you?  

Google is a "search engine."  It can be accessed here.

Please tell me you're familiar with clickable hyperlinks.

  1. Wow! Clickable hyperlinks are snazzy. I do get the reference. It's from the movie "Teen Wolf" Right?

  2. Good guess. They changed the movie title from "Teen Wolf" to "Back To The Future" when they realized there was no wolf in the story. The producers ended up commissioning another movie with Michael J. Fox that did involve wolves, so as to use up the title.

  3. I thought it was jigawatts. I could be wrong, of course. My flux capacitor hasn't worked in years.

  4. According to the "Back To The Future" Wikipedia page, it is spelled gigawatts, and usually pronounced with a hard g, but the "jigawatts" pronunciation came from a physicist the producers interviewed when they were doing research for the script.

  11. Talk shows never do fart jokes. Why is that? Just once I'd love to see David Letterman put a whoopie cushion on the chair as a guest is sitting down.

    Also: what ever happened to "...this top ten list comes from our home office in...."
