HUVr Board Hoax is Funny or Die Prank

Everybody who saw Back To The Future wants a hoverboard. Yesterday a video appeared that wants us to believe that HUVr Tech made the hoverboard real. The video of the product demonstration features a long list of celebs including Tony Hawk, Moby and Christopher Lloyd.

That the video is a hoax is pretty obvious. You also can spot the harnesses that make the Huvr board riders appear to fly. What is more puzzling is the question who made this hoax that not only consists of a video but also a complete corporate web site.

The initial guesses were around a startup launch, new Back to the Future movie or game. A leak in an online resume of a costume designer spotted by Mashable has though the answer. The Funny or Die team is behind HUVr.

Funny or Die has not yet officially claimed responsibility. The online resume has been removed, but still lives in Google's cache. The project description is very detailed and the shooting took place back in November. The video also fits to Funny Or Die. They are able to get now celebs to star in their videos.

Watch the HUVr board video below. It got over 2.3m views in less than 48 hours.
