Check It Out! Fox News Host Trapped Inside A DeLorean

On Wednesday, people everywhere celebrated Back To The Future Day in honor of Marty McFly's expedition to October 21, 2015, in the classic 1989 film Back To The Future II.

Apparently, Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade decided to celebrate a little differently than everyone else. Check out this footage of the Fox News host trapped inside a DeLorean.

The incident happened live during Fox & Friends' segment for Back To The Future Day (why else would they have a DeLorean?) with his co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Steve Doocy as well as '80s pop-rocker Huey Lewis looking on.

Lewis, who contributed two songs to the original Back To The Future, was scheduled to perform on the show. During his introduction, Lewis looks around before asking "Where's Brian?" It seems that Kilmeade was supposed to emerge from the '80s sports car at some point but got stuck.

As Kilmeade struggles with the DeLorean DMC-12's trademark gull-wing doors, Huey Lewis tells the camera, "We rehearsed this."

"He locked the door?" asks Doocy incredulously. "Try it again," he suggests, and when it doesn't work he tells Kilmeade "Just stick your face out."

It's Back To The Future Day—What Did They Get Right?

Hasselbeck wants Kilmeade to try a more scientific approach: "Just hit the flux capacitor and I'm sure something will happen."

Eventually, Kilmeade manages to get the flux capacitor... fluxing. He triumphantly emerges from Doc Brown's time machine, dressed as Marty McFly, only to hit his head on the gull-wing door, which definitely wasn't something they rehearsed with Huey Lewis.

"What year is it? Do I look like Michael J. Fox? Do I look as sexy as I feel?" Kilmeade pleads with the group. They don't think he looks sexy, but Elisabeth Hasselbeck tells him he makes a great McFly.

Viewers everywhere are still holding out hope for the entire Fox News team to get trapped in a DeLorean and sent back to 1955, where their conservative views might better fit in with the times.
