Midweek Video: Why Back to the Future is Secretly Horrifying

This gave me a lot to think about. This may wreck Back to the Future for you, so be forewarned.

Sadly, all stuff I've considered.

I really like this video. These are the great points and the acting in the video is pretty funny.

I'm such a nerd, but Marty creates a different Timeline with the whole Chuck Berry just as he flashes to the 1955. In Marty's original timeline Chuck Berry created the moves and song, but in the new timeline is really is a music theft...if by theft he's practically stealing from himself.
Here's the kicker, what happens to the Marty that jumps into the Time Machine at the end of the movie at Lone Pines Mall (Formerly Twin Pines Mall)? Technically, his 1955 adventure will be completely different.

Does that mean he comes back to a completely changed timeline from his present?

I could go on and on.

I could watch 30min of this stuff on regular basis.

Jeff: I hadn't thought about Lorraine being a danger freak before. That one was a new tangent for me.

Semaj: See, my problem is, I am sure everyone back in 1985, when they encounter the Marty from another timeline, think he must have some form of amnesia because he can't remember anything. I think that alone would screw anyone up.

Arjan: It looks like they are doing this as a regular feature over there.
