Parking Wins and Fails
13 October 2010
Here at Make and Model we spend more time than is probably healthy browsing YouTube. Having been caught out by the boss one time too many we figured we needed a good excuse should we get caught again...
Thus we bring you our parking wins and fails – as we endeavour to prove that YouTube isn’t just for funnies – it’s for work too?
So we’ll start out with a win.
Sadly there’s not enough space for this guy to park... Rather than driving around for ages desperately seeking a space; he instead elects to nudge one of the cars along just a little. Job’s a good ‘un.
And now to an epic fail.
So it starts out pretty badly when the driver smashes into a car whilst attempting some sort of nonchalant swing into the parking space manoeuvre.
Sadly there’s no sound on the video, but we imagine there were cries of ‘abort, abort, ABORT!’ (or possibly something NSFW) being screamed from inside the car. Here’s where it all goes to hell in a handcart. In their haste to make a getaway the driver then manages to reverse over a metal bollard which then gets stuck under the car. They finally manage to escape ‘sans’ bumper. Sucks to be them, huh?
Clearly an ad but nonetheless awesome.
White car "just" beats the maroon car to this space.
Holy compilation Batman!
We just had to include this – not only are there clips and photos of some truly amazing parking fails the soundtrack is Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins – which has got to be one of our favourite songs to drive (completely within the speed limit) to.
Proving that not all learner drivers suck at parking.
This five year old demonstrates some astounding parking skills...
Hell, even we’re not sure how to categorise this baby.
Worthy of inclusion thanks to the elevator music and somewhat sarcastic commentary alone; here follows a duel of epic proportions between a red car and a white car in Andover. Yep, Andover. Seriously, you need sound for this one... Two cars engaged in a head to head battle over a parking space; plus a slightly sheepish teenager who figured pushing his Mother’s car might give it the extra welly it needed to beat the evil red car... We’re guessing MENSA probably won’t be pestering him to join any time soon.
Worthy of an honourable mention, despite the lack of footage - Maureen Rees from
. Her classic cries on the dual carriageway ‘What’s the matter with you, I could’ve been off!’ and of course the time she accidentally drove over her long suffering husband Dave’s foot mean she surely deserves a post devoted entirely to her... or at least she would if we could get our hands on some footage *shakes fist at the BBC*.
So – what did we miss? Let us know by posting links to your favourite parking wins and fails via the comments.
