See 'Back to the Future: Part II' revised for the real 2015

"Jurassic World" and Donald Trump make cameo appearances in two "Back to the Future" scenes updated to match our actual modern world.

"Jurassic World" is a more accurate blockbuster for 2015 than "Jaws 19."

"Back to the Future: Part II" came out in 1989 but still did a decent job of predicting certain aspects of 2015. It got '80s nostalgia, Hollywood's addiction to sequels and hands-free video gaming right. It even got somewhat close on the Chicago Cubs' post-season success.

YouTube comedy channel PistolShrimps figured the movie could be a little more accurate, so it updated a couple of key scenes to reflect our real 2015.

The first scene to get a remake is the one where Marty walks by a theater showing " Jaws 19" and gets attacked by a massive holographic shark popping out of the marquee.

As we all know, 1975's shark-scare "Jaws" movie only received three sequels. PistolShrimps decided it would be more accurate to have 2015's "Jurassic World" playing at the Holomax theater, so it edited in a holographic Tyrannosaurus rex in place of the shark.

The next scene involves Marty's approach to the Biff Tannen casino and museum. Sorry, Biff, you have to step aside. Instead, we get Donald Trump's Pleasure Paradise featuring the Republican presidential candidate and professional wealthy person holding a wad of flaming bills on the sign. Tannen's wax figure is replaced with a Trump model while a narrator describes him as "America's greatest living folk hero."

PistolShrimps released the video on Monday, so it arrived a little too late for Back to the Future Day on October 21, which is the day Marty McFly arrived in the future in the film.

The video is less than a minute long, but it will make you yearn for a full-length treatment. Interested in tackling that challenge? Make sure to edit in a bunch of smartphones.
