Jimmy Fallon Asked People to Share Their Worst Car Fails, and Boy Did They Deliver

Share on Facebook

If you’ve ever owned a car, you’ve probably experienced your fair share of car fails, from the occasional speeding ticket to misplacing your car in a packed parking lot to the annoying fender bender that results in a ton of irritating paperwork but not any actual injuries. I, personally, once got into a screaming argument with a stranger over whether or not I could park in front of his house, only to come back hours later to find it towed. It turns out, he was right, and I know much less about parking regulations than I thought I did. To be fair, I was in my early 20s, so try to cut me some slack.

The following stories of car fails aren’t your everyday occurrences. In fact, these stories are so wild, they just might make you finally download the Uber app.

Although, this woman’s experience might make you think twice about that, too…

Think the following “fails” are just the basic, run-of-the-mill annoyances that come with driving? Think again.

Well, that’s one way to do it. But it’s also one way to get your arm ripped off.

I’m honestly impressed with this ingenuity. I would probably just shell out the $30 bucks for new wipers, but hey, to each their own.  

I’ve been there, buddy. This same exact thing happened to me at the Mall of America. And I would estimate that the parking lot at the Mall of America is roughly as big as America itself.

How cute is that?! Even the most hardcore Tupac tracks would sound adorable when played on that thing.

Did they crash?? Did the bird escape unscathed?! I need more information!

Maybe if you’re surrounded by gas all day long, you just block it out eventually? How mercilessly did his co-workers mock him when they found out about this little blunder?

Yet another Sir-Mix-A-Lot-related fail! I can’t say I’m surprised. I’m sure “Baby Got Back” was playing during many of humanity’s most regrettable moments.  

Yes, I understand that this makes it difficult to keep your back windshield clean, but just imagine how satisfying it would be to get a direct hit on an unsuspecting tailgater. You’d never have to give anyone the finger again!

How hilarious! These guys would come in handy if you needed to avoid a parking ticket in a hurry.

I can’t imagine this was a safe way of getting around. And just imagine how terrible a car crammed full of 20 sweaty teenagers smelled like.

Honestly, I’d take a ride from this guy if it meant I never had to parallel park a car ever again.

I’m sure this cop was very understanding and they both had a good laugh about it once he explained the situation.  

What a good pupper! Although I must say, the fact that this guy decided not to include a photo of Diesel is completely unacceptable.

Sure, this probably looked pretty bizarre, but just think about the added safety benefits that sitting inside an enormous garbage can would bring.

That must have been one spectacular sunset.

At this point, you just have to throw out the entire car. It’s just not drivable anymore.

What a relief that must have been! This is why it’s important to know for sure exactly what the situation is before you key someone’s car.

Wait…do you think this was the same bird that flew into the car and attacked the driver?!

Oh, Mom. You are so embarrassing.

What a rollercoaster! It’s a crime that this guy didn’t end up getting the job in the end. He showed so much moxie!

I’ll take “Things you should never say to a cop” for 800, Alex.

So…is your husband The Fonz? Just kidding! We all know The Fonz was way too cool to ever crash a car like that.

How is this even possible? And how did the cop behind them not see this happening?!

Let this be a lesson to all of us. Never drive a car with an 8 track.

This explains why every pedestrian would duck for cover whenever she drove down the street.

This same exact thing happened to me when I was 10 years old, but I clearly remember being much less cool, calm, and collected during the incident.

Too much is better than too little, right? Right?!

Let’s hope the cop at least appreciated this guy’s spunk as he was writing that ticket.

Of all the days to die, being strangled to death by your seatbelt while attempting to vomit into the street has got to be among the most humiliating. Who doesn’t love a fun-filled trip to the beach? On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better than packing up the cooler with frosty cold drinks and an assortment of snacks, throwing on your favorite suit, slathering on the sunscreen, and catching some epic waves as you soak up the sun and become one with nature. It’s the perfect way to connect with family and friends and usually results in some good laughs, good exercise, and good old-fashioned fun that you just can’t get indoors. Except when it doesn’t. The following people reveal their biggest beach fails, which range from accidental exposure to humiliating experiences with a few disgusting surprises thrown in. You’re going to want to wear your lifejacket for this one, folks. The secondhand embarrassment is so strong it’ll leave you cringing for days afterward. (And make you reconsider that trip to the beach you have planned at the end of the month.)
