This holiday season, there’s been a lot of news about “hoverboards”—from store sales to emergency room visits. Now there’s a story from the Philippines about a man many are calling the “hoverboard priest.” HPR’s Bill Dorman explains in today’s Asia Minute.
The story begins during a Christmas Eve mass in a church in Laguna—southeast of Manila. A statement from the Diocese of San Pablo in the Philippines picks up the thread. Quote: “as a way of greeting his parishioners, the priest sang a Christmas song, while going around the nave standing on a hoverboard.”
