Matt Mulholland Does Back to the Future – All By Himself

Posted by on Sep 21, 2011

Say you take one of my favorite scenes of all time, and then you re-dub all the music and voices and sound effects using solely your own voice. And you do a bang-up job of it. You’re going to make me a happy person. After you check out this video, you will know that Matt Mulholland has made me a very happy person today. Mulholland is an A Capella singer with a long list of YouTube postings, that range from fun to cheesy to amazing – sometimes all three at the same time. He’s put out a few multitracks, as he refers to them – re-dubbings of movie scenes or songs with multiple tracks of his own voice, creating a choral or orchestral effect. He’s done a multitrack of the original Matrix lobby shoot-out scene, and also of the light-saber battle between Qui-Gon, Obi Wan, and Darth Maul. Clearly he knows how to get the attention of us nerds. But this might be his best showing so far, or at least my favorite: the skateboard chase scene from the first Back to the Future. Check out the video and let us know what you think after the jump.

I forgot how excited that music makes me. Did you forget that, too? Well now we both remember. Props to Matt for a job well done. Or at least I think so. How about you?
