The Weekly Links: Toyota Reunites Doc Brown And Marty McFly, DeLorean Coming To Rocket League Video Game, BTTF Remix By Eclectic Method

Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! Are you counting down the days to Back To The Future Day next week? Well, the rest of the internet is (if you couldn't tell by the TWL headlines) as new surprises and goodies seemingly pop-up everyday. I really can't wait to see all the great content next week leading up to Wednesday.

And speaking of...a couple BTTF-themed articles snuck onto the site this week. Check out what you might have missed:

Call me crazy for loving anything that's promoted by Biz Markie. (You're Crazy!) The new all marshmallow Lucky Charms campaign captured the Video of the Week honors with its insane music video to the tune of "Just A Friend." My questions is, why just 10 boxes? Why you hoarding the Lucky Charms marshmallows, General Mills?
