A police officer in Canada was ready to write a ticket for a car parked in a snow removal zone but was perplexed by the snow-covered vehicle.
The “car,” it turned out, was not a car at all but a life-sized DeLorean made entirely out of snow.
The artist, a 33-year-old machinist based out of Montreal built a model of a DeLorean DMC-12, made famous in “Back to the Future” films, in order to pull a fast one on snow removal crews, KMSP reported. Simon Laprise even added a real windshield wiper to the sculpture to give it a more believable twist.
A passing police officer stopped to investigate as the comical scene was captured in photos shared on Facebook. The skeptical officer, ready to write a citation, seemed to be staring at the “car” and then apparently called for backup. With another police officer arriving on the scene, the reality was soon discovered.
Laprise did end up getting a ticket – as fake as the car he had made.
“You made our night hahahahaha :)” the citation read.
No telling if the snow removers got to enjoy the prank as crews plowed through and destroyed the sculpture the next morning.
