Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Clueless motorists and terrible traffic jams burden cities all over the world, but the congestion depicted in this viral video is borderline ridiculous. In Naples, Italy, a camera positioned on a balcony above captures one man's spectacularly misguided attempt at a U-turn down a narrow street.

In the video, the little backstreet descends into chaos as the driver tries -- slowly -- to turn his car around in an impossibly small space.

But the sudden appearance of angry motorcyclists and a stereotypically Italian religious procession seem too perfect to be real, and according to The Guardian, the video is believed to be a fake.
