After appearing in the HUVr “real hoverboard” video earlier this week, Tony Hawk has now issued a video apology for his role in the prank. You can watch Tony’s apology in the video above.
“I thought it would be obvious that it was fake…to me, it was just a fun opportunity to ride in a DeLorean with Doc,” Hawk says in the apology video.
