This hilarious parking fail was just caught in 4k and now it’s going viral

One of the worst parking attempts in the history of parking has just been captured on camera. 

A man filming from a window above has managed to record the moment a driver took countless failed attempts to parallel park their car in France. 

And the worst part, or best depending on how you look at it, is that they’re driving a tiny Citroen Ami smart car.

Since the video was posted on TikTok, it’s gone viral, amassing 1.3 million likes and more than 30,000 comments. 

The now-viral video shows the smart car making six attempts to park, each more tragic than the last. 

After going back and forwards a few times, it looks like the driver’s finally figured it out, pulling up alongside the car in front to give itself room to maneuver back. 

Unfortunately, that’s not the case, and the driver manages to reverse so far back it almost hits the car behind it.

Eventually, the video comes to an end before we ever find out if the driver was successful or not. 

We’ll hazard a guess that they probably weren’t though.

Thousands have since commented on the video, leaving their feedback for the poor, unsuspecting driver.

“It’s one thing not to know how to parallel park, but I’m honestly questioning if this person even has their driver’s license,” one said. 

One woman implied the car was so small, the driver should just “get out, pick it up and place it in the right place”. 

“If only they had a smaller car,” another said. 

One person joked it was so small they should have just driven it nose-in.

Another sympathized with the driver, saying “that’s my biggest fear – that someone will film my struggles when I parallel park”. 

On the other end of the spectrum, another video has gone viral for the opposite reason. 

This woman was filmed getting into her SUV in Washington DC and maneuvering it out of the tightest parking space like a total pro. 

The SUV clearly has no more than an inch in front and behind it, but with just a couple of moves, she manages to free it without issue.
