Hoverboards prove hazardous this Christmas season

A popular gift this Christmas season were hoverboards, or two-wheeled skateboards, essentially, but some people are quickly realizing that this method of travel might not be for them.

Thanks to a collection of snarky relatives on social media, we have video evidence of just why hoverboards for some people are a BAD IDEA.

Lesson learned, to say the least.

Needless to say, it’s looking like there will be a sharp decline in sales for this..um…interesting product next holiday season.
