The Car-Free Diet Show

Building on the success of previous “Car-Free Diet” campaigns for our Arlington County Commuter Services client, we decided to reach out to a broader audience (consisting of anyone who likes watching funny videos online) with The Car-Free Diet Show, the first, only and – most importantly – #1 rated 4-to-5-minute-long sketch comedy show devoted solely to the car-free lifestyle anywhere in the world. Check out all the episodes at!
