When we launched The Biscuit in 2018, we decided to make a video called LimeDog about a dog-sharing app that was sure to be the next wave in the “sharing economy.” Since then, we’ve gotten pretty good at making funny videos that comment on things happening in Charlotte through a new lens. We love collaborating with our fellow creatives on these vids, including that time the Charlotte Squawks folks asked us to create videos for their 2019 show. So take a big bite – but beware, this Biscuit is known to bite you back.
