Yes!! I laugh every time at how ridiculous that commercial is.

I think I laughed the first time, no, the first time I saw it I thought "huh?" and hit the rewind button on the remote to hear it again, cause I thought she said "run it into the ground"

Was behind a 1st gen Highlander this morning (ie a Camry tall wagon).

Could help but laugh that both sides of the rear bumper had Camry Corners...

Not a Camry, but I saw this gem today:



That's an Escalade ESV, so a rather long vehicle. When parked on an end space, he couldn't be bothered to pull all the way forward into the space, or even come close to staying within the lines.

I park across like that all the time in spaces like that. It avoids door dings and doesn't take up two spaces. Of course, my car is a little smaller than that. Still, I don't see anything wrong with moving over a foot in a spot like that.

Can't tell from the picture if the back is sticking out.

It is an Escalade ESV. The back is WAY out.

It looks like they were using the "Jeep" next to them as a guide. It's not pulled in all of the way either. Granted, it's not nearly as long, so it's not an issue.
