When a mysterious company called HUVrTech released a video of its hoverboard "product," most people fell for it.

After all, there's the DeLorean, Doc Brown, and...Tony Hawk! And... Moby? T.O.? OK, it seems like a lot of convenient celebrities were celebrating the invention of the hoverboard, but what the hell? "The technology has finally caught up," said Christopher Lloyd/Doc Brown in the video.

"I can't believe how well it works," tweeted Tony Hawk.

Watching the video, we couldn't either. The Internet was enraptured--even the website looked legit. Alas, it turned out the whole thing was a (pretty elaborate) prank done by Funny Or Die.

Check out the video below. What would you do with a hoverboard?
