Hoverboards Are Real! (1989)

Paleo-Future reader Chris mentioned that as a 13-year-old he watched a "Making of" documentary for Back to the Future: Part II. In it the director, Robert Zemeckis, claimed that hoverboards were real. I tracked down the clip. (And to be honest, I can see how a 13-year-old might believe that the hoverboard was real. I mean, the man on the television told me so!)
