World’s Worst Driver Tries 15 Times to Back Into Parking Spot, Still Fails

Friendship goals: get you someone that will try to help you out even when what you’re asking of him is stupid, like the guy in the video at the bottom of the page does for the world’s worst driver.

A viral video shared on Chinese social media is just the thing to brighten up your day and prove that, when it comes to the title of world’s worst parker, it does not go to a woman. This guy was spotted trying to park his SUV outside a residential building in Huaihua, in central China’s Hunan Province, on September 23.

The video was posted by Xiaoxiang-Jiongge to Tik Tok, from where it spread to microblogging platform Sina Weibo, the Daily Mail reports. In the space of just 2 days, it got a total of over 90 million views and comments galore, prompting a mix of hilarity and disbelief in viewers. You can also see it at the bottom of the page, but be warned: this is so stupid it might very well be fake.

A white SUV comes into the picture, trying to back into a large parking spot next to other 3 cars. There seems to be a garbage can on the side, but there is space enough for him to maneuver into the spot without accident.

For some reason, he is unable to do so. He goes back and forth for 15 times and still isn’t able to back into the large and very much empty parking spot. At some point, he even asks the help of a male passer-by and he willingly helps him push the car. As if the parking attempts weren’t stupid enough, they’re seen trying to push the SUV from the side: at first in the rear and then in the front, obviously, without being able to move the car an inch.

Eventually, the driver gives up, speeds forward and leaves the car parked laterally across 2 spots. The Mail says there are other photos of the same car outside the building, and in one of them it’s parked across 3 parking spots.

As one commenter puts it “this has to be a fake because they can’t be both that stupid.” Given the photographic evidence of the serial parking offender, this could either be a very elaborate joke or we have just found the world’s worst driver.
