It’s impossible to miss the “hoverboard” trend that is taking over the YouTube & Vine community by storm.

Some YouTubers even film their entire dizzying vlogs while rolling around on one, causing fans to complain in the comments. They bring them to basketball courts, offices, airports, swimming pools – even overseas.

While the gliders are popular and loved by many – not everyone is a fan. Shane Dawson recently dubbed them “stupid f****** Viner gliders”. Additionally, when Julien Solomita gifted one to Jenna Marbles, she joked, “We can be f****** a*******.”

There is no agreement on a widely accepted name for the gadget yet, because none of the “companies” actually own the original patent and are simply re-selling legally-dodgy Chinese products.

The two-wheeled, self-balancing electric scooter is sold under hundreds of brand names, like MonoRover, Cyboard, IO Hawk, Hovertrax, PhunkeeDuck, Glidr, Future Foot, Airboard, Mini-Segway, Esway and Freego.

This is because anyone can buy them for $200 from China, tack on a branded logo, then multiply the price by 10 for resale.

Supposedly, the original patent is owned by Inventist, and sold under the name Hovertrax. They are finding it legally impossible to handle all the copycats.

Injured Shane Dawson Takes a Stand Against Hoverboards: “F****** Lame Piece of S***!”

“You really missed out at VidCon, because there were many people on these automatic things,” Joey Graceffa said to Shane in a vlog two weeks ago.

“Yeah, they’re f****** losers!” Shane Dawson shouted. “And anybody who rides those are a f****** lame piece of s***! Sorry for spilling the truth tea.”

“I like them. I want one,” Joey said. “If you guys are listening, send one to me.”

“Those stupid f****** Viner gliders… they are douchey enough that they don’t need to be gliding,” Shane fired.

Injured Shane also joked on Twitter, “You look f****** stupid. Please fall and break a limb!”
