Laprise sculpted the Delorean to look like a life-size version of Marty McFly's ride had been parked throughout a snow storm for days.

Simon Laprise, an artist, mechanical engineer and auto enthusiast, crafted the vehicle in a snow-removal zone, where it's illegal to park.

Laprise said it took him four hours to create the vehicle.

Simon Laprise created a life-sized vehicle out of snow after a recent heavy snowfall in his part of town.

Cops soon realised they'd been pranked but not before its creator, Canadian Simon Laprise, had caught them on camera.

As you can see in his Facebook photos, Laprise created a relatively realistic looking vehicle out of snow complete with a real windscreen wiper that he found laying on the ground.

A Canadian artist decided to make light of a cold situation in the country when he played a trick on snow removers and received the attention of police.

"You made our evening", the officer wrote, in French, on a ticket posted by Laprise. It's illegal to park on the street during snow removal, which is probably why the police officers showed up to check out the situation.

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

In the end, the 33-year-old's creation was destroyed by a snowplow the following morning.
