The viral video hit the internet on Tuesday of a bunch of celebrities riding the hoverboard from “Back to the Future: Part II” and the internet prematurely exploded with viral joy at yet another hoax based on the greatest movie franchise of all time.
It’s the folks at Funny or Die. This was not funny and I wish you would die for teasing us like that. Again, the sanctity of BTTF has been tarnished again and again on the internet, possibly more so than any other film in history.
The hoax was uncovered after a costume designer listed the video on her online resumé. Rookie move.
I beg you, internet. Please respect Robert Zemeckis’ masterpiece. If you play with 1.21 gigawatts, you’re bound to get burned.
