feel free to jump ahead to 1:40
, the first woman attempting to park is ... well, just kind of a boring example of someone who is really bad at parallel parking, but the SECOND one is hilarious, first of all, it's a SMART 24, the tiniest car on the road since Jeremy Clarkson folded himself into an easter egg pretending to be a car, and as you watch it you may well think;
is she trying to get INTO the space, or OUT of it?
are her hands covered with butter? I can see her bingo wings flapping furiously, but the front wheels are not turning much...
there, there, I've almost ... got it . . . nope.
maybe if I get more space and try it FASTER
ok, more runway is obviously needed then
then she gets out, and seems just UTTERLY BAFFLED that she's at an angle or how to fix it, maybe the road moved?
even in this long distance shot, you can tell from her body language that she doesn't have the first whimperings of an idea of what to do to fix this....
her friend gets out, and doesn't even attempt to direct her- (just stands WELL CLEAR of this tiny car as the driver gathers herself to try again)
we can't hear her friend, the poster of this video has added a frenetic banjo soundtrack that adds immeasurably to the humor, a musical pastiche that opens a clear window into what jangly anxiety must sound like inside this womans head as she attempts to square the circle... but if we could, I imagine she's saying something to the effect of; "It ain't gonna git no better Joleen, just let it be, it's good enuff, we're gonna be late!"
she slowly pulls out, we're rooting for her, yes, that's a good angle, that will work
she continues pulling forward slowly.... slowly....!!! SWEET JEEBUS, she's not going to try and do it FASTER is she !?!
NO,NO,NO, ...... wait, is she .... HAHAHAHAHA!!! She's apparently decided this whole car dealy is just not for her, and has proceeded to drive straight to the dealer to return it, leaving her friend(?) standing in the parking lot...
