The tobacco spittoon just before Marty flings it at Buford Tannen

Spitoons were round containers used in the 19th century for spitting tobacco juice into, becoming an unsavory collection of saliva and other items. They could be found in public places such as saloons.


In 1885, Marty McFly jumped on a board while dancing to "Billie Jean", which flung a spittoon into the air, landing on Buford Tannen and dumping its contents on him.
