    That damn friggin' advert "sheila's wheels"

    This advert is allways on I dont even know what their advertising I dont even think Iv ever sat and watched it, but I know the damn song "for girls you like to blah, blah blah... something, something, something feels.. come along to Sheila's wheeeeeels.." no feck off.

    And the ad with that fat geordie "brand new customers only"
    Cant believe they have based a whole ad campaign on that smug cnut.. any ad with Jamie Oliver, and the damn Halifax ads with the funny looking Brummie bank manager....
    grrrrr oh the hilarity he is really a bank manager, he is brummie and black and cant sing or dance..
    I know lets do ads with him singing and dancing!

    Silver, i found this for you...

    For ladies who insure their cars,
    Sheilas' Wheels are superstars,
    Girls are bored beyond endurance,
    Payin' too much for car insurance,
    For bonzer car insurance deals,
    Girls get onto Sheilas' Wheels.
    Women make the safest drivers,
    We could save a bunch of fivers,
    For bonzer car insurance deals,
    Girls get onto Sheilas' Wheels.

    Can't deny it's catchy though can ya?

    It's made the company a household name instantly after coming from nowhere.

    Anyone noticed that the background movie in the advert is going backwards? Or is it meant to be, to give it the impression of a low cost ad designed by buffoons?

    Yeah what a crap ad. And what the hell is going on with the RAC advert too? "With only 35,000 policies left...". ONLY 35,000? That still seems a lot, and what company would try to RESTRICT the policies it sells? Ridiculous.

    Lets be honest here, crap and cheesy ads stick in our minds, and if we remember them, they have done a good job right?

    Only if you remember the company behind it! It's no good recalling a good or bad advert if you don't know who it stands for!

    I was in Buffalo Joes in Glasglow last night (classy place for those that know it) and the DJ played that FEKIN SHIELA'S WHEELS tune!

    WTF is all that about?

    Almost spat my beer over some of the 'cattle' in there when it came on.....

    I like the Sheila's wheels ad because folks here actually think we use the 1950's vintage colloquilaism "bonzer" in everyday language.
    If I hear anyone use "sheila" back home, even in an email, I'll let you know. You could be waiting quite some time....

    Whoops...

    I'm a girlie..and this still mad me laugh!... I hate that advert song!


    Sheila's Wheels

    Fellas, aren't you glad you're not a woman
    You're not a Sheila, you're a Peter or a Clive
    Because their lack of spatial awareness
    Makes them really f***ing careless
    You should never ever let a woman drive

    When a girl is sitting at the wheel
    You're gonna hear the crunch of steel
    There's a very real danger
    That she'll crash into a stranger
    If you want to leave the car alive
    Never let a woman drive

    If you ever let a bird reverse
    You're gonna end up in a hearse
    You're in massive f***ing peril
    If your driver's name is Cheryl
    If you want to leave the car alive
    Never let a woman drive
