Watch Back to the Future Fans Turn a DeLorean Into a Hot Tub Time Machine

By B. Alan Orange — July 19th, 2016

What do you get when you put a hot tub in a DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future? Super Fan Builds has time traveled into the future to created a one-of-a-kind hot tub complete with a Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor and electric actuators! This comes from the new season of Super Fan Builds, with all episodes now available on go90 right now.

Super-Fan Builds follows Hollywood's top prop makers and craftsmen as they create one-of-a-kind collectibles for deserving super-fans of movies, video games, comic books, and pop culture. Now you can watch as designer Shane Hammond, who has worked on Iron Man and Deadwood, creates an incredible custom DeLorean Hot Tub Time Machine for a Back to the Future super-fan.

Back to the Future is the quintessential 80s time travel movie (though Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure comes in a close second). In this 1985 sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the '50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Traveling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he'll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.

It wasn't until 2010 that we got the answer to Back to the Future that this next generation needed in Hot Tub Time Machine. In this comedy, Four pals are stuck in a rut in adulthood: Adam (John Cusack) has just been dumped, Lou (Rob Corddry) is a hopeless party animal, Craig (Craig Robinson) is a henpecked husband, and Jacob (Clark Duke) does nothing but play video games in his basement. But they get a chance to brighten their future by changing their past after a night of heavy drinking in a ski-resort hot tub results in their waking up in 1986.

Now, both classic time travel movies meet head-on in this latest episode of Super-Fan Builds! Watch as the DeLorean Hot Tub Time Machine comes to life in this new viral video. Super-Fan Builds just returned for a new season on Youtube and on Go90. All future episodes will run exclusively on Go90. Though, we're not sure they'll be able to created anything as fun as this. Now all they need to do is install an old style rotary phone!
