U-Turn Fiasco: Driver in Naples Attempts U-Turn in Fiat [VIDEO]

By Jesse Lent | February 11, 2013 01:32 PM EST


There is at least one good thing to come out of this video of a U-Turn fiasco--a Fiat 500 driver in Naples, Italy attempting a U-turn on a narrow and crowded street--the internet may have just found its new favorite idiot.

The video, which first went viral four days ago, already has over 115,000 views on YouTube.

In it, a man attempts a U-turn in a narrow Italian back ally, provoking an outcry from other motorists resulting in Italian crowd chaos that hasn't been seen since the last Fellini film.

"No wonder Italy's bankrupt," quipped YouTube viewer SuperPartyBoy84.

"It is like a scene from a comedy movie," wrote YouTube viewer Kostas Argy shortly after the video was published.

Myron Gains also sees more Mike Meyers than Federico Fellini.

"It's a scene from Austin Powers," gains wrote, referencing the scene in the shagadelic comedy where the faux-mod British detective attempts to drive a golf cart through a tight corridor.

Although not everyone is sold on the video, which some feel could be a bit too perfect to be real, according to the Inquisitr.

"If it is fake, there's probably a company behind it. But who would have staged the U-turn fiasco?" the publication asked. "Is Fiat trying to show off the limited turning radius of the Fiat 500? Is the Catholic Church trying to get back on people's good sides by showing how good they are at giving directions to confused drivers?"

There has of yet been no response from the driver or videographer. Will the driver of this U-turn fiasco please stand up? Austin Powers, is it you?
