Learning how to parallel park isn’t easy at the best of times — so you can imagine how hard it’d be on television?

John Travolta appeared on Ellen this week to promote The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, joined by his wife, Kelly Preston, and his daughter, Ella.

Ella is taking driving lessons at the moment, so Ellen thought it’d be fun to test her parallel parking skills.

“So, we’re gonna use my car…” DeGeneres said, as the bulky vehicle appeared on screen. “It’s an easy car to, uh, parallel park. So let’s all go out there. I’m gonna get in the car with you!”

Ella got in the driver’s seat, while her dad and Ellen took the backseat. Things got tense pretty quickly, as Ella got dangerously close to hitting a Hyundai.

“You’re doing great, honey,” said Ella’s supportive dad. “Look at this, look at my genius girl!”

Ellen, on the other hand, looked a little more concerned than John. Watch the clip above!
