The PhunkeeDuck is the most embarrassing mode of transport ever and it's EVERYWHERE

Spoiler: it’s worse than the Segway.

LAST NIGHT, BASKETBALL player JR Smith lit up Twitter.

But not because his team Cleveland Cavaliers lost the NBA finals to the Golden State Warriors. Instead, Smith became the subject of conversation because of his preferred mode of transportation.

Introducing the PhunkeeDuck.

The PhunkeeDuck is sort of like a hybrid between a skateboard and a Segway. It requires little physical exertion and does away with the need for walking.

It can hold 300lbs of weight and, when fully charged, it will last for 10 miles.

It reaches a maximum speed of 12 MPH and is basically the most embarrassing gadget ever. Worse than snakeboards. But despite the fact that they are mortifying/not even that handy, celebrities seem to love them.

Here’s Justin Bieber singing hymns with his bros while riding a PhunkeeDuck.

Cher Lloyd loves PhunkeeDucks, too.

As do Wiz Khalifa and Jamie Foxx.
