Jan. 18 (UPI) — A Canadian man made a fake car out of snow and got a real parking ticket.
Montreal native Simon Laprise crafted a Back to the Future-style Delorean on the side of his street as part of a prank and he got the results he expected.
“It was a beautiful day,” Laprise told Vice. “So I decided to do something out of the mountain of snow, to do a little joke to the snow guys, and have fun sculpting a car. It’s not my first one, just the first I do in the street on snow removal day.”
Laprise sculpted the Delorean to look like a life-size version of Marty McFly’s ride had been parked throughout a snow storm for days. He even added indentions for the wheels and windows — and then threw a spare windshield wiper he found lying around for a special touch.
The snow car looked real enough that when police came around to look for cars parked on that side of the road during a snow plowing hours, they wrote a ticket and left it on a windshield made of snow.
Larpise had his last laugh as he posted the photos to Facebook.
“Muhahaha,” he wrote.
