Just because you're rich doesn't mean you can handle your million-horsepower hypercar. Jalopnik readers know that this usually ends embarrasingly, and on video.
Welcome back to Answers of the Day - our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
Not all supercar drivers are total tools. The good ones never end up on viral videos like these, so you just don't notice or hear about them. It's these cases that make up a very vocal minority of the supercar ownership experience.
Hell, we wouldn't be surprised if there were more crashed Corvettes than anything else. These two videos (here and here) spring to mind as perfect cases of bad driving not being limited to the richest of the rich.
And before we delve into all of our video footage, let's remember this classic shot, from before everyone had YouTube and a GoPro.
So remember everyone: supercars are loud and fast and silly. Try not to drive them too fast, because when you inevitably crash yours, you'll want to step out, take a bow to the flashing iPhones, and take the whole thing in stride. Supercars are about show. Enjoy them even in their more embarrassing moments.

It's hard to top this misadventure in a Parisian parking garage, which shut down a good bit of France's capital. Well done, boys.

Here's another video we've seen before, where even the most flattering supercar can't save terrible driving skill.

Not all supercar embarrassments are crashes. This guy in downtown Manhattan sowed that when you drive something as expensive as a 458 Spider, you have to be the world's most courteous driver, or else you'll get your ass smashed.

Watching how this Ferrari driver cuts through traffic like a total d-bag, you're not suprised when he finally eats it.

This one is hot off the presses, only happening this week. The owner disappeared before the police arrived, too.

Just because it has four wheel drive doesn't mean it can't crash into stuff.

In this promo for some awful movie we can't even remember the name of, Eddie Griffin appeared to kill an Enzo. Have no fear! The Save The Enzos foundation restored the car and brought it back like a zombie.
