Musician/comedian Matt “The Mouth” Mulholland was able to recreate the entire audio track from the famous skateboard chase scene in ‘Back to the Future’ using only the power of his own voice.
Mulholland voiced the dialogue, the sound effects and the background music from the scene on different tracks and synced them to the video. As you can see (and hear) below, the results are very impressive:
We recently told you about the Nike Air Mags, the ‘Back to the Future 2′-inspired shoes that pay homage to the footwear sported by Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in the blockbuster sequel.
