Viral Hoverboard Hoax Triggers Back to the Future Nostalgia

Mass nostalgia erupts as hoverboard hoax sweeps the net, becoming viral.

Is it April 1st already? It was very hard today not to come by a video made by a company named HUVr tech, claiming it has developed the first ever hoverboard. 

Hoverboards were made popular in the 1989 cult film sequel "Back To The Future II" which featured a memorable scene where the main character, Marty McFly (portrayed by Michael J. Fox) traveled to the future where he engaged in a hoverboard chase. The hoverboard is basically a flying skateboard, an idea which has excited many over the years.

HUVr tech has recruited some big names to appear in the video, and what made most people fall for it was the appearance of the "Doc" himself, actor Christopher Lloyd who portrayed the mad scientist in the movies. Lloyd is joined by the famous pro skater Tony Hawk, singer Moby and NFL player Terrell Owens. Of course, the video is a hoax and it's still unclear for which purpose it was made.

Back To The Future Video Slot

Over the years, Back To The Future has been featured in many video games including a popular pinball machine. In 2006, International Game Technology (IGT) released the first ever Back To The Future video slot featuring the series very own Chrisopher Lloyd. Unfortunately the slot hasn't made its way to online casinos yet but we're very likely to see one in the future, as the hoverboard hoax yet again uncovers just how popular the movie is. Expect a hoverboard related bonus game!
