Are you so bad at parallel parking that even the guy in the big Caddy can fit in a smaller parking spot than you? Well, you should ask Chinese stunt driver Han Yue for advice.

Electronic parking assist be damned, Yue recently set a new Guinness world record for the tightest parallel park, squeezing a MINI Cooper S in between two cars with just 8.0 centimetres of room left (besting the previous record by 5 centimetres).

Of course the only way to do that was by drifting his way into the parking spot, so you may not want to try this at home!
