Secret Academy Episode - Brian Foley
About:

Upon graduating college, Brian Foley moved 30 miles away from Malibu to Santa Monica, CA. Remarkably, he was able to fit everything in car EXCEPT his mattress. After making numerous phone calls and hearing many excuses later, he decided to rent a UHAUL just to move his one mattress. Unfortunately, his truck driving skills proved to be less than stellar when he accidentally hit his new roommate's car while parking. This experience gave birth to an idea that there should be a service available where people who needed trucks could link up with people who had trucks to move furniture or other big items. Thus, Buddytruk was born.
