This is the bizarre moment two cars refused to make way for each other for over an hour when they tried to park in the same space.
A thread started at 6.30pm by chicken tikka mariah showed a black car trying to reverse into an empty spot in Koreatown, Los Angeles, as a silver car attempted to drive in from behind.
She posted regular updates as the stand-off continued – even as daylight faded – and attracted celebrity followers including Chrissy Teigen who described it as a ‘dream thread’.
Model Tess Holliday called for both drivers to get in touch with the uploader.

The two drivers also created a dangerous situation for oncoming traffic as cars were forced to swerve around them to avoid the two drivers
The amusing thread captures the stand-off when both cars started vying for the same space at 6.30pm.
Filmed by Mariah from an upstairs window, the cars sit stationary in the road with their hazard lights flashing – neither willing to make way for the other.
Other drivers swerve around them, honking loudly, but the drivers aren’t willing to budge.
Mariah tagged one post of the two cars sitting in the road saying ‘Petty level 6000 unlocked’.
Explaining what she thought had happened, she said: ‘It seems like black car drove past a spot and then did a fast stop and reverse and silver car was like ‘absolutely the f*** not’ and did a classic box in’.
Both cars were eventually able to park more than an hour later, after another parked car drove off, but the argument didn’t stop there.
Both pulled up and switched off their cars, sitting there motionless for quite some time, the black car in front of the silver.
One driver made a phonecall, according to Mariah, before the driver of the silver car got out.
The thread, posted by twitter user chicken tikka mariah, said the two cars had been battling for over an hour before they could park
They were able to pull up just after 7.30pm when another parked car drove away. The two drivers then sat in their car’s silently for a while and one made a phone call
Mariah was so entertained by the hilarious stand-off that she wrote both cars letters, thanking each for their time.
Leaving them on each cars’ windscreen, she wrote to the silver car: ‘Your resilience is inspiring. Thank you for the hour and a half of entertainment. I’ll never forget you.
‘I hope you and black car can be friends after this.’
Mariah left letters for both the silver and black car on their windscreens to thank them for the bizarre show
She said that she backed the black car, and thought that it was always in the right
Mariah then posed for a picture between the two cars that had provided more than an hour’s worth of entertainment
To the black car, she said: ‘I was always on your team. I really thought you would win, but am happy with the way things turned out.
‘Everyone on my Instagram said you deserved the spot.
‘I respect your patience and non-confrontational handling of this very special situation.
‘The public wants to know who you are. We love your work’.
Both letters contained an email address to allow either car to get in contact.
She then posed for a photo of herself between the two cars before going inside.
Reacting to the hilarious stand-off, Chrissy said: ‘This is a DREAM thread.’
She then got embroiled in the debate about which car was in the right.
Backing the black car, she said: ‘It wasn’t just driving then saw in his rear view mirror there was a spot behind him. He passed it on purpose. TO PARALLEL PARK.
Chrissy Teigen, pictured in New York, tweeted that she backed the black car, saying it had clearly been trying to parallel park
‘Anyone saying silver car – You are a mean and bad driver.’
Tess Holliday tweeted: ‘God I hope someone emails her’.
Later on Mariah received an email from someone claiming to be silver car’s driver. She said they were clearly an imposter.
‘When I was a little baby car, I loved black car deeply…’ begins the email.
‘I would follow them around and purposefully move into their spot when they were backing in – making it look like I had it the whole time.’
