Tom (BIFF) Wilson’s Question Song

James / November 12th, 2010

Most Back to the Future fans have seen this already, but in case you haven’t, take a look. It’s mandatory viewing! (especially for “Back to the Future Month”)

Also funny, there’s this one. It’s the same song, but in case you’re feeling adventurous and looking for something other than the traditional camera angle. This one is performed with the camera INSIDE HIS PANTS!

    I had never seen this! I’m not the hugest BTTF fan, but I have seen the first movie about eighty times. The other two, maybe once or twice.

    And video #2 is one of those fussy ones that won’t play until it’s fully loaded…I love those. But it has different lyrics if you listen carefully.

    I’ve seen the first one and that is hilarious, but the pants video had me doubled over!

    I love how his song is wrong. (Key) grips don’t set up lights. They aren’t allowed to even touch lights. That’s the job of an electrician. And the job of a best boy is to help the gaffer with power distribution.

    I show this to all of my friends, Tom is a funny dude.

  • November 12, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    I love BTTF!

    Hey, the one in the pants had a few different questions. But it was hard to hear over the muffle of his…um…pants.

    That was friggin’ hilarious! Tom Wilson is one of the most underrated actors. I’ve seen a lot of his work and always liked his performances. Thanks for sharing, James.

    Well, technically the key grips don’t handle lights on major productions, but saying they “set up lights” is often essentially correct as sometimes they’re partially in charge of managing the lights for the scene. And on some productions, best boys are involved in setting up light fixtures.

    Actually accurately describing what these jobs do, in their varied forms, would have made for some really awful song lyrics so….

    Man, he’s funny. Biff is hands-down the greatest bully to ever appear onscreen, and it’s all due to Tom Wilson.

  • November 12, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    I made a small comment on one of his vids saying I liked his stuff and all of a sudden I get this on my Youtube channel from Tom Wilson himself:

    “Way to go, buddy! One of๏ปฟ your videos has over 300 views! Whooo! ”

    I guess I should feel honored or something…

    Okay that was pretty damn funny! Though the second song had some different questions we couldn’t hear because of pants-cam! Also good to hear that it wasn’t real manure! Though I had hoped and figured it wouldn’t be! Thanks for sharing this, it was quite entertaining! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The different lyrics were:

    What’s Michael J Fox like? He’s nice!
    What’s Christopher Lloyd like? He’s Kinda quiet
    What’s Crispin Glover like? Unusual….
    Stop asking me the question!


    Was that real manure? No it wasn’t
    How was that Delorean? A piece of garbage
    Do those hoverboards really fly? Hey, it’s a movie!
    Stop asking me the question!

  • November 12, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Hahaha! I laughed at the manure part. Love this song and the tune is quite catchy you can’t go wrong.

    He’s funny and all, and I watched his comedy special — one thing stood out to me, though. He struck me as an actually sorta’ angry and unstable dude. I mean, he kind of scares me in a way. It feels like he’s got a hot temper, or some anger issues — might be me projecting on him, though.

    … anyone else get that vibe?

  • November 12, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Tom is one funny guy, I’d like to see him in a new movie!

    I could very much see him as a new Ghostbuster, totally out of control and wanting a punch up with ghosts!

  • November 12, 2010 at 10:34 pm


    Not true. Grips aren’t allowed to touch lights; that’s the job of an electrician, even if it’s dropping a scrim in. Grips help cut the light with flags, sure, but they aren’t setting up lights .. ever.

    I remember watching this on College Humor back in.. 2006 or so. Great video. Maybe I’ll meet the guy at a convention some day.

    correct me if im wrong but i read a comment on youtube saying that he posted on his website that he isnt signing any BTTF stuff anymore because it marginalizes him? I hope this isnt true and hes just acting on stage but if it is its gonna suck for anyone who meets him and thinks theyre really lucky and go up to him all happy and stuff.
