Irish drivers among internet
IRISH drivers - one
super-slow the other super-fast - were among the
world's biggest internet sensations last year.
A woman's epic 30-minute attempt to parallel park
her car has reached over a whopping 4.7 million
internet hits. It featured at an impressive No 17 on
Rude Tube's New Year list of last year's hits.
Dubbed 'The World's Worst Attempt at Parking' the
excruciating video was captured by student flatmates
from their second floor window in the Holylands area
of Belfast last April.
The hilarious clip includes a running commentary and
plenty of expletives from the lads behind the camera
including Ciaran Shannon and Ciaran Doherty.
"We found it quite funny. I drive myself and have
had plenty of problems trying to park cars. That was
an exception," said Shannon as their video went
viral on YouTube.
The blow-by-blow video takes an even funnier twist
when the friends begin to do a Big Brother-style
voice-over, quipping "Day Five..."
When the car is finally parked, the students give
the bemused driver a huge round of applause.
Meanwhile, an Irish
rally driver and co-driver and their
expletive-riddled rant at a fellow competitor in
front clocked up more than 252,000 internet hits
The ten-minute YouTube video is called "Clare Stages
09 (Patrick Horan/PA Baker) - Nova 1600 catches
Subaru" with the air turning increasingly blue as
they race to the finish line. The driver gets
increasingly frustrated when they encounter a
pile-up ahead and have to stop.
The rally clip features at No 65 on the Rude Tube
2014 leage table. Meanwhile, you have to go
Stateside to find last year's most viral videos.
A cute baby crying heart-wrenching tears as its
mother sings a sad song makes takes the No 2 slot
with more than 28 million internet hits. Last year's
No 1 top-ranking clip was Virginia-based "invisible"
prankster Rahat Hossain. Hossain dupes drive-in cafe
workers with his clever car seat disguise which
gives the impression and driverless car has pulled
up to the drive-in hatch. Hossain spookily motored
to over a whopping 37.8 million internet hits last
