London Valet's Struggle to Enter a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster Resembles Painful Yoga

Thanks to the impromptu surveys we've done over the years, we've learned that most men think valets who work at top hotels around the world have nice jobs. And we couldn't blame many of those we asked for considering hanging around with supercars a pleasant working habit.

Then again, there are few situations where the hopelessly impractical nature of these flamboyant machines will bite back any human trying to interact with them.

If we are to choose from the contemporary array of supercars, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is definitely one of the supercars that can easily give valets headaches. And watching the example in the video below makes us say that in a literal way.

The footage shows an employee of the Millenium Hotel in Knightsbridge, London, being tasked with looking after an open-top Aventador. Once again, something that might sound like a memorable moment can easily turn into a plunge too far down the rabbit hole.

For instance, the simple task of getting inside the car, turning off the ingition and grabbing the key can be a nightmare if you're as tall as this guy and not in touch with your contorsionist side.

So please be considerate and think twice before capturing a screenshot and turning this guy's struggle into a meme.

Oh well, at least the owner didn't cross the line by leaving the car with the top stowed. Having to install the roof would've certainly been one hell of a job.

Sure, compared to the Murcielago's canvas top, which took more to install than the average duration of a summer rain session, putting the Aventador's two-piece carbon fiber roof over your head seems like a walk in the park.

In theory, you only have to take the two pieces resting in the nose of the supercar and do your thing. The parts are made of carbon fiber, so they're not too difficult to handle.

The part you only find out about when you have to install the roof with your own hands is this - having to deal with the roof under the stress of a potential scratch makes those carbon panels seem ten times heavier than they are.
