Sheila’s Wheels

February 2, 2007
Putting aside the discriminatory nature of this company’s marketing campaign, can I advise people not to insure their cars with Sheila’s Wheels? *

You’ll have seen the annoying advert, with the three Australian women singing a trashy jingle about women getting cheap insurance, whilst driving through the outback in some nasty pink car.

Next time you look, you’ll see that these women are driving on the wrong side of the road (Aussies, like Brits, realise that driving on the left is still a good thing to do) and at one point, the driver takes her hands off the wheel and waves them in the air and takes her eyes off the road.

Not the safest way to drive and if this is the sort of person that this company are encouraging, then your premiums are bound to go up in the near future – keep away from them!

*This post is intended as a humorous observation and is not designed to put people off using this company, despite the fact that they won’t let blokes apply. I just wish they would get rid of that bloody song!

    At one point the car appears to be being driven by a kangaroo.

    What is the position of the ruralshire constabulary on the driving of motor vehicles on the public highway by marsupials?

    It’s probably not a priority, as there are no Government targets regarding the driving of motor vehicles on the public highway by marsupials.

    If the Government set a target, that would be a different matter. The offending marsupials would be caught and prosecuted.

    But it would have to be in a kangaroo court.

    Actually this was just a slip by the film crew. They managed to film the hoodie so it came out as a pouch.

    If you go to http://www.amateurtransplants.com and click on “sheila’s wheels” you will hear an alternative version of the song.

    It made me laugh……..
