President O’bama arrived in Ireland this morning to kick off a six-day tour of Europe. This morning, the president’s armored limo — Cadillac One, affectionately referred to as “The Beast” — was attempting to leave the U.S. Embassy in Dublin when it got stuck on the driveway’s inclined ramp.

And as one astute observer immediately mentions, “Oh, that’s for YouTube.”

The BBC has more on Obama’s European tour and trip to Ireland. This also isn’t the first time that General Motors’ specially-designed limo has had trouble. Footage of The Beast¬†struggling to execute a three-point turn in Downing Street was a viral hit.
