Funny Or Die recently teamed up with a group of celebrities for an elaborate prank to convince the world hoverboards were real and that a company called HUVr Tech had invented them. Sadly, we were lying. The great promise of Back to the Future II has not been fulfilled ... yet. And for that, we truly are sorry. « less

Christopher Lloyd: Hey there, Huvr heads. It's your old pal
Christopher Lloyd here.
Christopher Lloyd: Recently a video hit the internet, that
I am sad to say I was apart of.
Christopher Lloyd: What can I say? those rascals over at
Funny or Die tricked you and me both into
Christopher Lloyd: thinking the hoverboards were real.
We were hoodwinked, flimflammed, hornswoggled,
Christopher Lloyd: shanghaied, bamboozled, hover-duped,
swindled, and scammed.
Christopher Lloyd: Now, you may be saying, "Chris, what do you
mean you were tricked? You were there.
Christopher Lloyd: Surely you saw the wires, and the cranes,
and FX people."
Christopher Lloyd: For that I say I was blinded by my own belief.
My brain must've erased the wires from me.
Christopher Lloyd: Let's just leave it at that.
They tricked me.
Christopher Lloyd: Anyway, here's what I did to make things better.
Christopher Lloyd: I marched over to Funny or Die, and made them
give me the hoverboard that I,
Christopher Lloyd: and all the other folks signed on that
day of the shoot.
Christopher Lloyd: This belongs to the people.
Not in some dusty old storage unit.
Christopher Lloyd: So apparently if you still have a Facebook
account, you should go,
Christopher Lloyd: leave a comment on this video, and
one of you will get it.
Christopher Lloyd: At the very least, one person will be happy
after so many of you have been sad.
Christopher Lloyd: Even though I was tricked into being in this
fake hoverboard video, part of
Christopher Lloyd: me is happy about my involvement, because if
we inspire, one person to get
Christopher Lloyd: into the hover sciences, I consider that a victory.
Christopher Lloyd: Here's to hoverboards being actually real
Christopher Lloyd: Go. Do it. Make it happen, for all of us.
Christopher Lloyd: God bless you.
