back-to-the-future-iiThe celebration of Back to the Future Day extended far and wide on Wednesday October 21, 2015. While all three movies are iconic we pay particular attention to the second film, which envisioned that by this year we’d have a host of crazy new technologies and products, including hands-free video games and flying cars. Although we haven’t mastered all the futuristic technology we witnessed in the movie we have made strides towards some, including personal drones. Flying drones are all over the place in Back to the Future, shown doing everything from walking dogs to capturing images for news publications.

With #BacktotheFuture and #BacktotheFutureDay trending at a high level on twitter throughout the day, this was the perfect opportunity for MRV, a JSA client, to capitalize on a popular topic of conversation. At INCOMPAS Fall 2015, MRV gave away a personal drone to a lucky winner and promoted this while giving a shout out one of the most important dates in movie history!

The above tweet was recognized at INCOMPAS as the “Social Media Post with the Most Creativity” and winning a $100 American Express Card. On behalf of MRV, THANK YOU INCOMPAS! We can’t wait to see the strides technology will make over the next three decades. We’re looking forward to the day when we get to say, “Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.”
