Funny or Die confesses to making the fake hoverboard that enthralled the internet

That hoverboard from yesterday that looked straight out of Back to the Future, and also too good to be true, is not the real deal. Funny or Die, the makers of numerous internet shenanigans, just posted a video with actor Christopher Lloyd apologizing for the HUVr, though Lloyd did not go so far as to explain what the project was really about. Peering into the camera, a despondent Lloyd says he was blinded by all belief that the production — which featured professional skater Tony Hawk, musician Moby, and others floating on a hoverboard — was a spoof. As a consolation prize, Funny or Die is giving away a replica of the HUVr board signed by Lloyd and the rest of the crew to one random Facebook commenter.
