Why Must You Torture Us?: Fake Hoverboard Commercial

angry-hoverboard-video.jpg

This is a fake video from HUVrTech featuring Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown), Tony Hawk and a handful of other celebrities (including Terrell Owens and Moby) lying about riding a real hoverboard. The CG is decent, but the whole thing is impossible to believe. Plus they made the hoverboards look exactly like they did in Back to the Future. It mostly served as a painful reminder of just how far technology hasn't come since the movie came out. I'm going back to bed.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Teddy B, outspire, Jackie, Ford, RunnerJive, BIFF, wanderer33third, Chris P, Patrick and anybody else who didn't include 'hoverboard' in the title of their email, who sadly agree humanity will meet its end before we ever invent hoverboards.

    At 3:30-3:35 you can see the nicely setup cherry picker off to the right for their rig. HA! Why else would it be set up, legs extended and soo awesomely positioned? I want to hear someone argue that it is real, That would make my day!

  • Kaizer Chief

    This is a comment that's sure to earn me some (well deserved) hate... But the way Americans pronounce "hover" really makes my ears cry.
