Christopher Lloyd is turning into a busybody. Last season, he guest-starred on Fringe, then reunited with Michael J. Fox for the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future. Now he's hanging out in South America shooting DeLorean commercials. Wait—what?!

Lloyd reprises his role as Emmett "Doc" Brown from Back to the Future for a commercial that was recently filmed in Argentina. The ad and behind-the-scenes video have surfaced online, and both feature the actor wearing coveralls and a white wig and driving the DeLorean.

Here's some amateur video from the shoot. In the description box below it, the text says:

"This is the HD video in the Delorean in Cabildo and Oath (FINAL COMPLETE VERSION). It's full participation of all Christopher Lloyd ("DOC", Emmet Brown). It was shot earlier today in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I share it with everyone because I had a hard time finding it. The other versions are not in this capacity and are not full versions. Seeing that we could imagine a Back To The Future IV. Will there be another one?"

After watching the final product, it's uncertain what the commercial is advertising. Is it the store Doc crashes into? Is it a camera or a phone? Check out the ad and tell us what you think.

Have any of you seen this footage before? We have to admit, the sheer sight of Doc Brown makes us feel all warm and gooey inside.

But we still have no idea what's being advertised.
