Carmageddon Doesn't Care About Your Botox, Prius, or Audition

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

It's coming, and it doesn't give a hoot about your busy life. Carmageddon doesn't care about your Toyota Prius, your audition in Burbank, your Les Miz or Shrek the Musical tickets, your meet-up in Runyon Canyon, or your Groupon for Botox.

"Just park your car that weekend," advises a wise Xtranormal bear in this goofy video ribbing Angelenos' panic about not being able to use a portion of the 405 Freeway for a weekend all while pitching a website that aims to help L.A. cope with the seemingly un-cope-able. "Explore your neighborhood. Find a new friend." It's true: It's not impossible. "It's only a road. Get over it."
