Mike Baird seems like a pretty cool guy.
This morning the NSW Premier went to work in a DeLorean – the car that featured as a time machine in the Back to the Future trilogy – to mark the date, the day Marty McFly landed to find a world in which shoelaces tied themselves and hoverboards were the preferred mode of transport.
Despite the fact that he filmed his arrival and used the opportunity to spout some cheesy poli-waffle about the state’s future, the video looked right at home in my feed of memes and comments about the movie and has been watched more than 300,000 times.

See, he’s clearly a cool, hip, up-to-date guy. A couple of weeks ago, he was even live-tweeting The Bachelor from the couch with his daughters while suffering a bad case of “man flu”.
