The 33-year-old machinist and artist from Montreal was hoping to prank snow removal crews in his neighborhood with a fake auto he made after a storm Monday, modeled after the Delorean DMC-12 of Back to the Future fame.

Laprise said it took him four hours to build the auto, according to the New York Daily News.

The vehicle looked real enough that at least one police officer drove by to write a ticket for illegal parking. Laprise said that he hoped to prank the snow removal guys.

The work of art, which loosely resembles an iconic DeLorean, gained a finishing touch in the form of a real windscreen wiper, which Laprise found on the floor while crafting the project. In other, two police cars are at the scene.

Instead, he left a ticket letting the artist know he made his night.

Laprise, whose Facebook profile lists interests including 3D drawings, design, welding and mechanical engineering, told Buzzfeed that all the messages he's been getting froze his computer.

A hilarious photo posted on Facebook shows the police officer staring at the "DeLorean" parked in a snow removal zone.

Amused by the false DeLorean, the officers left Laprise's vehicle with a ticket under its single wiper, reading, "You made our night!"

When the snow removers arrived the next morning, they didn't seem fooled by Laprise's DeLorean snow sculpture, as it was completely destroyed as they cleared the street.
