While Raider of the Lost Ark will always be my all time favorite movie, Back to the Future easily comes in at number two.  Back to the Future hits a milestone in a couple of weeks, and Spike TV is getting the gang together at the 2010 Scream Awards.  Don’t believe me?  They took the time to recreate the BTTF teaser trailer complete with an aged Michael J. Fox to get auds to tune in on October 19, 2010.

    “We’re sorry. This video is not available in your country”.

    I know you and MS aren’t responsible, Stephen. But this crap really pisses me off sometimes. Especially as I had to endure a 30 sec advertisement before being told this.

    Zoning off parts of the internet is like zoning off an ocean or drawing borders in the air. It’s useless and petty and counterproductive to the nature of the medium.

    Rant over. Sorry.

    • Yeah, I was met with the same message. Rather offpissing, you are quite right. But as you say, this is not Stephens fault, and I am guessing that there was no way for him to know that it would be a problem.

      Here is an international-friendly version from Youtube of what i presume to be the same video:

      • Antonio Sanciolo on

        yeah thanks,
        the youtube clip wasn’t available at the time of my first post but it highlights my frustration at this point. If I know of the existence of something on the net, and I’m determined enough, I’m going to find it.

        For a promotional piece like this (which at the end of the day, I must admit did not blow me away and made me feel sad for Mr. J. Fox) it is beyond the point of stupid to limit the viewing audience.

        Unless it was their plan all along to get me so hyped up about such trivialities, in which case I insert one of Matthew’s “A-Ha!”‘s that he’s so fond of.

    • I sympathize. I can view this trailer just fine, but there are other sites and other trailers that I cannot see because of similar restrictions (such as many Doctor Who trailers or videos unavailable outside the UK).
