Watching This Citroën Try To Squeeze Through This Narrow Gate Is So Painful Oh God No

Chances are this video will make you grimace and say things like “no, dummy, no stop don’t no stop” at your screen. And yet you’ll still watch it, and it’ll hurt the entire time. Why do we do these things to ourselves? We do, though. We do.

Here it is, all frustrating and strangely compelling:

Man, that poor Citroën Picasso. I like those things. It deserved way better than this. You’d think the driver would have taken the hint all the times the car stalled out, as if to say no, don’t do this, stop, stop now!


But the driver didn’t listen. Or back up enough to align themselves straight on to the opening, or anything that actually makes sense.

Ugh, those sounds.
