There’s a Secret ‘Back to the Future’ Item on O’Reilly Auto Parts’ Website
Now this is one of the greatest things we've seen on the internet in a while! O'Reilly Auto Parts, an automotive retailer with 24 locations across Maine, has a special page on its website for one of the most famous auto parts of all time.
The famous "Flux Capacitor" from Back to the Future has its very own page on OReillyAuto.com, but you have to know how to get there. Think of it as like a secret handshake, or a password to get into an ultra-nerdy speakeasy. How do you find it? Well, you have to need it first! People seeking to do some time traveling at 88 MPH should to go to OReillyAuto.com and search "121G" (for 121 gigawatts, of course!) and you'll find this terrific easter egg.
O'Reilly lists the product from the "EB" Line, and it has a product number of 121G.
According to the tech specs listed on the website, plutonium is required to properly operate the Flux Capacitor.
Plutonium is used by the on-board nuclear reactor which then powers the Flux Capacitor to provide the needed 1.21 Gigawatts of Electrical Power. Plutonium not Available at O'Reilly Auto Parts. Please contact your local supplier."
O'Reilly has 24 locations across the state. I wonder if any of them have one of these bad boys in stock!
Actually, come to think of it... if someone did get ahold of one of these things, they could just go back in time and get it before anyone else, so maybe that's why nobody can find one!
