A Re-enactment Of Robert Zemeckis’s Back To The Future Pitch Meeting

That’s the premise of this video which attempts to recreate the objections Robert Zemeckis must have faced from Hollywood’s brain dead, coked up, 80s studio execs.

When you put it that way, maybe Zemeckis did have some weird sexual issues? …nah.
