Tony Hawk

SORRY FOR HOVERBOARD PRANK

Didn't Think People Were That Dumb

3/6/2014 1:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news



Tony Hawk is sorry ... he's sorry that some people were actually STUPID ENOUGH to believe his obviously phony hoverboard commercial was real.

Of course, hours after the video was released, it was exposed as a gag clip for 'FunnyOrDie.com" -- but apparently, not everyone was hip to the hoax.

"I wanna apologize for the hoverboard prank," Hawk said in a new video ... "I thought it was obvious it was fake but a lot of people believed it."

In related news ... the flux capacitor is also bulls**t.

I was hoping it was real so I could get the Back to the Future 2 Nikes that will be out next year, and go hoverboarding around

He was wrong most people are really dumb, they walk around all day half asleep in some kind of trance and believe everything they see on TV. The average American is clueless, they only care about the next game or show on TV or shopping at the mall.
