It's been 26 years since Christopher Lloyd donned a lab coat and portrayed lunatic genius Doc Brown in the Back to the Future franchise. This year, though, Lloyd jumped back into the lab coat to revisit his role in an Argentinian TV commercial.

The commercial shills for an electronics store, and proudly feature both Doc and his DeLorean DMC-12. Even cooler, the DeLorean used for close-ups in the commercial is one of the actual originals used in the filming of the movie. Look closely, though, and you'll see that the machine used for the stunts is actually an old and heavily disguised Toyota Celica... apparently, nobody was in the least bit interested in damaging such an iconic movie prop.

Click past the jump to see the spots for yourself.

      What is this strange device that you point at things to record moving images? They could have thought of a million other things for Lloyd to say, but they make it spout that crap. He knows what a video camera is from the first two movies, even if he's living in the wild west.

        And you are calling someone dumb? They used the Celica for the stunt sequence, the car parked inside the store is a real Delorean from the Movie... READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE YOU CALL SOMEONE DUMB...

      He also reprised the role of Doc Brown in a music video back in 2008 by an artist O'Neal McKnight called "Check your Coat" hahaha he even had a beard in this music video. Even the DeLorean was featured. Here's the link to the music video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mreaWY7NSjY

      Would be nice to see the whole original gang in one more flick while they're still all alive(I believe). Then again, we all know how badly those "revivals" turn out. (Indiana Jones IV) On second thought...

        I’m from Argentina, I live 20 blocks away from the place the add was filmed, So cool they brought Christopher Lloyd and the De Lorean all the way down here. And the correct way is Argentinian xD

      The Delorean used for close ups is not one of the original ones used for the films. It is a Delorean Time Machine replica, built and owned by Terry and Oliver Holler, seen at ToTheFuture.org
