Um, Did You See the Delorean Hovercraft on the Bay?

If you were jogging on the Bay Trail or cruising down Frontage Road yesterday at around noon, you might have thought you’d woken up in 2015 — or been blasted back to 1985. A DeLorean that looked like it came straight out of Doc Brown’s workshop was cutting up the bay waters between the Emeryville and Berkeley marinas, making spins and flapping its gull-wing tail feathers. A couple hundred feet north of the Emeryville harbor, where I-80 hugs the bay, a ten-foot cardboard sign declared, to the tune of Katy Perry(jk) Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”, “Hey I just built this / And this is crazy / But watch me hover / And hire me maybe?”
