Man Pranks Police Officer With Car Made Out Of Snow

A auto made entirely of snow confuses police officers in Montreal.

There's a saying "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" but when 33-year-old Montreal resident Simon Laprise woke up to find a ton of snow outside his house, he decided to make a 'snow vehicle'.

Viral images posted to Simon Laprise's Facebook page show a full-size sculpture of a DeLorean. Laprise said that he hoped to prank the snow removal guys.

The snow vehicle 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.

He sculpted a life-size replica of a DeLorean DMC-12 - the vehicle model made famous in the Back to the Future films.

Last three years hottest on record
The last three years were the hottest on record, according to a new United Nations report, and 2017 was the second-warmest ever. Much of the globe's recorded temperatures were near or above average in 2017, according to NOAA.

Laprise's finishing touch was masterfully placing a reject windshield wiper on the car's faux windshield, as if it were the only part of the auto left exposed.

Snow plows removed the snow auto the next day. In other, two police cars are at the scene.

The ticket, left under a branch meant to be a wiper blade, read "Vous avez fait notre soiree!" which translates to "You made our night!"

Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist, still got a ticket - but it was fake just like his auto.

Laprise said that a plow came by the next morning and turned his DeLorean into dust.
