Funny Or Die Admits To Hoverboard Hoax With New Video, Shares How You Can Win Signed Replica
  |  @   |  

By now you’ve likely heard of or seen the video that stormed the ‘net recently claiming to show a real working Back to the Future II hoverboard. Everyone wanted to believe it was a real thing, but the general consensus was that the video was almost certainly fake. Not long after, it was discovered that Funny or Die was apparently behind it all.

Now Funny or Die has admitted to the prank, and is apologizing for such a cruel, cruel hoax. They’ve released a new video with BTTF star Christopher Lloyd, who appeared in the prank video and even got a little emotional toward the end to help try to sell it, talking about the deception. He also reveals a way that one person will be able to win a replica hoverboard that was signed by the celebrities who took part in the prank.

Yesterday a video was uploaded by a company called HUVr, which claims to show the first real-deal working hoverboard ever created.

At first glance and without any other knowledge the video might just blow your mind. But there’s more going on here than first meets the eye. Click on over to the other side to see the video.
