Sir Ian McKellen may be the latest actor to flex his deductive skills as Sherlock Holmes in Mr. Holmes, but apparently those skills don’t extend to deciphering parking signs.

The social media star (remember when he and Patrick Stewart explored New York City together and thoroughly documented it on Twitter?) shared this photo of parking signs in Hollywood, with the caption: “Perhaps #SherlockHolmes could deduce whether it is okay to park here in Hollywood Saturday at noon.” Surely being knighted allows you to park wherever you want.
