Movies often need audience help in the form of suspension of disbelief, wherein you agree to ignore some of the wilder aspects of a plot or yet another outrageous coincidence. But movies are fiction, whereas this video of a driver trying to maneuver out of a parking spot in Calgary, Alberta, Canada is true. In fact, this video required us to embrace disbelief, constantly asking ourselves, "Is this really happening?"

Caught by surveillance video doing such common parking maneuvers as the 68-point turn, the turning circle and our favorite, the hit-and-run the driver - we can't tell if it's a man or a woman - finally breaks free with his or her car, if not his or her wits. The video tells the whole sorry tale.
