Much ado has been made about Marty McFly's self-tying sneakers from "Back to the Future Part II." What's been forgotten is his groovy hat of the future...until now.
That's right, McFliers, you can now dress even more like your hero thanks to the Marty Hat Replica at ThinkGeek. At $24.99, it's a lot cheaper than the $37,500 a British rapper paid out for a pair of McFly replica sneakers.
The hat is made from a super reflective fabric that shimmers and glimmers with swirls of color. It looks like a herd of unicorns upchucked some rainbows all over it. The hat is one-size-fits-all-geeks with a Velcro closure at the back.
"Back to the Future Part II" came out in 1989. The film's vision of 2015 still looks incredibly '80s, just with flying cars and sweet self-tying kicks. Don this fashion nightmare of a hat and you will be both retro and futuristic at the same time.
I would recommend pairing the replica hat with a "Back to the Future" T-shirt and a DeLorean, otherwise you're going to be stuck explaining your headgear to all the people who don't remember it from the movie.
