When my friend Ryan and I heard that Nike was finally making the shoes Marty wears in Back To The Future 2, our heads exploded. Then we were bummed out that there was no way we were going to get a pair, because they are only auctioning 1,500 pair. Then we got a plan. This is our craigslist ad below.
Guess what: the future is finally here and Nike made those badass shoes that Marty McFly wears in Back To The Future 2.
Guess what: there are only 1,500 pair that are going to be auctioned. So, they are unaffordable for anyone you and I know (you're on craigslist, so don't argue that), and the only people wearing them are going to be "that d-bag who made a startup missing a letter in the word who got a round of funding for an app that's going to fail in 3 months."
It's time to go back to the future, mothefucker.
We want people as nerdy as us to go in on the ultimate nerd timeshare: part ownership in a pair of shoes that will do the opposite of getting you laid, but totally get you TONS of high fives from other nerds:
My friend and I want to create a strong enough bid to get a pair of the Air Mag's in the eBay auction.
Imagine going to a bowling alley and dropping one of those puppies on the counter and being like, "you got anything in a LACELESS SIZE 10 1/2 YO?" BAM. I'M NOT MESSING AROUND (Drops Gray's Sports Almanac like the mic, walks away).
Here is some criteria.
- You should probably be between a size 10 and 11. To be fair, this sh*t is from the future and laces itself, so it's probably better to have a smaller foot than a larger one if you don't fit the criteria, because we figure it'd be like BAM, size 9? We can adjust to that.
- We're not looking for the $1 "haha that's cute, i'm in!" bidders. Hell no. Be serious. Bring like, $200 bucks to the table or nothing. This is a time share, so you're gonna get these shoes for a little bit of the year and then mail them along to the next Marty McFly. If 52 people gave $200, that's about a $10,000 bid. So if we won, we'd all get them for about a week of the year, which would probably be the coolest week of your life.
- Ability to quote BTTF 1 or 2 is a plus. 3 was kinda crap. Let's be real (only one of the founding member's opinions).
All the money from these auctions will go to Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's charity. So think of this like "Toms for Marty McFly." Plus, Elizabeth Shue was in Part 2, and she's really hot.
If you're interested, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we actually get enough serious people, we'll kickstarter the shit out of this shit.
