Biff is selling his “Back to the Future” collection -- on VHS, of course.
Tom Wilson, who played the adversary to Michael J. Fox’s Marty McFly in the “Back to the Future” trilogy, is selling his shrink-wrapped VHS copy of the three films and a documentary, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will be part of a Heritage Auctions sale that ends June 9.
Wilson, 63, played Biff Tannen, Griff Tannen, and Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen in the film trilogy, portraying the villain in the trilogy, which began with the original “Back to the Future” movie in 1985 and its sequels in 1989 and 1990.
The VHS collection also includes a copy of the 1990 documentary “Secrets of the Back to the Future Trilogy,” which was hosted by Kirk Cameron.
“The feeling was overpowering to rip this open and watch that Kirk Cameron guy,” Wilson said in a video promoting the auction.
The auction also includes individual shrink-wrapped copies of the “Back to the Future” films, according to Heritage Auctions.
“‘Back to the Future’ actually did affect the future, because this is such an early VHS,” Wilson said in his promotional video. “This is just the beginning of the time when you could watch a movie as many times as you wanted to. You would get this VHS, put it in your VCR and watch it over and over and over and over again.
“I’ve heard from many thousands of people around the world who did exactly that. When your friends came over, and Dad put this in the VCR. When you were sick from school and there was Back to the Future, like an old friend -- it’s been an amazing thing.”
