​OAP Parks Up In Lamborghini But Forgets To Put On Handbrake

Imagine parking up in your yellow Lambo and walking off, only to realise you forgot to put the handbrake on. Yup, that happened to one poor sod:

It was reportedly an OAP who parked the expensive Lamborghini car on a crowded street in Hong Kong, who must have been left pretty red-faced after he forgot to put on that all-important handbrake, meaning the vehicle rolled down the hill and into the side of a bar.

CCTV cameras captured the drama unfold as it slowly moved downhill and picking up speed - before mounting the pavement and crashing into the bar.

In the footage, you can see a man sat outside at a table panic briefly (as you would if you saw a car hurtling towards you), trying to grab the table and step backwards as he spots the car inch closer and closer.

Thankfully, the Lamborghini wasn't travelling fast enough to cause any major issues - and it's believed that it wasn't even damaged, as it got stuck on the edge of the pavement. Things DEFINITELY could have turned out a lot worse.

But the incident, which took place in Hong Kong's Lan Kwai Fong area, still managed to attract quite the crowd, much to the embarrassment of the sheepish OAP as he made his way to his car to clamber back into it.

Even more awkwardly, the footage of the whole thing got posted online - because, you know, it is 2018 - and racked up over 250,000 views.

Considering the car had been left stranded outside a bar - D26 bar and restaurant on D'Aguilar Street, to be precise - you can just imagine how merked the bloke got when he returned to the car. I mean, just think about what happens when a someone drops a glass in a restaurant ('WHEYYYYY!'), which is nothing compared to this.

After the video clip went viral, people online have been lining up to take the piss out of the driver as well, with one saying that it looked like the man sat at the bar was getting a free Lamborghini with his drink. That'd be quite nice, wouldn't it?

Someone else wrote: "If you can't drive, then don't buy a nice car. Money can buy you a nice car, but not a brain."

I'm still just amazed the car was fine in the end of all this, to be honest. That is one lucky dude.
