A Toyota Camry being used for a between-inning promotion got stuck in the outfield during a Houston Astros-St. Louis Cardinals MLB spring training game on Sunday. Just watch the family sedan awkwardly try to squeeze between the wall and a T.V. truck.

Apparently the wall’s door couldn’t open far enough to let the Camry through, so the attendants tried to close the door to make more room, while the Camry driver cranked on the steering wheel to turn the sedan just so. This did not work:

After a very Austin Powers-esque multi-point turn attempt, the driver gave up and exited through the doors in the left field wall.

I’d love to see this person try to parallel park.
