(Meredith) -- A Canadian man who wanted to confuse snow removers with a car he made entirely of snow, fooled the police instead.

Simon Laprise created a life-size model of a DeLorean DMC-12, made famous in the “Back to the Future” movies, using a bunch of snow outside his Montreal home.

It looked pretty believable, at least to one cop who drove by.

A hilarious photo posted on Facebook shows the police officer staring at the “DeLorean” parked in a snow removal zone. He apparently called for back up, because another patrol car arrived at the scene. 

The cop inspected the vehicle and soon discovered it was just a snow sculpture.

Laprise, a 33-year-old machinist, still got a ticket – but it was fake just like his car. The citation read: “You made our night hahahahaha :)"

The next morning, Laprise said snow plows destroyed his creation, showing all good things must eventually come to an end.
