Light as a feather, stiff as …
Until that dream is realized, we’ll have to tide ourselves over with Universal’s new hoverboard faux commercial, released just in time to hype the 30th-anniversary home video re-release of the Back to the Future trilogy.
The minutelong clip features a dreadlocked sk8r-bro extolling the virtues of “the first-ever skateboard that’s always catching air,” though movie fans already know how handy they are for scooting around town, dodging bullies, and saving the time-space continuum. (Just remember, they don’t work on water unless you’ve got power).
Watch the hoverboard commercial above as you wait patiently for the future to arrive.
