A 41-YEAR-OLD man still maintains that the hoverboards depicted in the 1989 film Back To The Future II are real.
Tom Logan, who watched the time travel comedy when it was first released, has insisted ever since that the anti-gravity board ridden by Marty McFly was not a special effect.
Logan said: “The hoverboards were prototypes developed by American military scientists. Steven Spielberg got special permission to use them because he was friends with the president.
“They never made them commercially available because the Russians could have taken the technology and used it to make a force field.”
Logan has a friend who claims to know someone who worked on Back To The Future II and had to sign a special secrecy contract about the hoverboards.
He said: “Special effects simply weren’t that convincing in 1989. Seriously, I don’t give a shit if you believe me or not, it’s true.
“It’s the same with the proton packs in Ghostbusters. Real, but too far ahead of their time for the general public.”
