COCKROACHES Pink Hummer Limo Broker

Limo Broker Pink Hummer Limo Featured in ITV2’s Cockroaches

It is true that our vehicles end up in some pretty amazing situations, having seated the likes of Kim Kardashian, been on tour with The Vamps and this week featuring in the new sitcom Cockroaches.

Featuring stars such as Jack Whitehall, Daniel Lawrence Taylor and Esther Smith, we all anticipated the first episode of ITV2’s Cockroaches, and we were not disappointed.

The sitcom depicts what it would be like if the world were to end, focusing on the relationship choices we would make as a result. The post-Armageddon situation is although serious is theme, hilariously represented, showing the streets of Essex in complete dismay.

Where such stories have been illustrated as adventurous, traumatic events in other dystopian programmes Cockroaches hones in on how the human being is left in hilariously awkward situations, playing with the question ‘what if I were the last man on earth?’.

It is hinted upon that we can expect a rather interesting love triangle involving the three protagonists, with many funny trials and tribulations unfolding on the streets of Essex.

Created by Big Talk Productions the opening scene sees characters Tom and Suze pushing a trolley through the city, surrounded by some great vehicles that have been abandoned during the anarchy.

Amongst those vehicles lays our stunning pink Hummer, hired by the producers as a vital prop in the ever so important exposition.

The 13 ‘most significant’ cars, according to James May

He is our favourite Top Gear presenter with his dry sense of humour having blessing our households for many years and although seen as a laughing stock by his fellow colleagues James May knows his stuff when it comes to great cars.

In an attempt to have the last say on what cars are the best in he has whittled his choices down to 13, which he will showcase at this year’s Classic Motor Show at London ExCel.

He has divided the thirteen vehicles into two groups, ‘The Halls of Obviousness’ and ‘The Chambers of Bloody-Mindedness’, adding a touch of his personality to the presentation of vehicles.

“You could probably guess the identity of the six in the Hall of Obviousness without reading another word,” said May, “but the other six are less well known. I believe they are just as significant historically but they’ve simply been forgotten or misunderstood.

“But the 13th is certainly the car that looms largest in my motoring life – the biggest inspiration.”

Below you will find his decisions, accompanied by some ingenious comments from the TV personality.

The Halls of Obviousness

1886 Benz Motorwagen – “People will argue about this, but the Benz Motorwagen was the first true car as we would understand it.”

1908 Ford Model T – “The brilliance of the Model T is the way that it was made, rather than the car itself.”

1938 Volkswagen Beetle-  “It became the world’s best selling single-platform car, even though the early models were pretty horrendous to drive.”

1959 Austin Mini. – “An original Mini is incredibly uncomfortable and a bit hairy if you crash it, but also fantastic to drive.”

1964 Ford Mustang – “In the first six months of its life it was the fastest selling car in history. It’s the car that democratised style and performance.”

1997 Toyota Prius – “It was the first mainstream car of my lifetime that caused people to rethink the basics of how a car should work.”

The Chambers of Bloody-Mindedness

1901 Waverley Electric – “At the beginning of the 20th century, electric car outsold petrol-powered cars in parts of America. They were clean, quiet and didn’t make ladies’ skirts grubby.”

1906 Cadillac Model K -“The real hero of the mass-produced car story isn’t Ford’s Model T but the Cadillac Model K.”

1933 Standard Superior – “It is widely accepted that Josef Ganz, a respected Jewish engineer, came up with the basic layout and philosophy of the Beetle.”

1972 Honda Civic – “The original Civic was a compact, lively and fuel efficient car that was well made and almost faultlessly reliable.”

1980 Lada Riva. -“The Russian-built, Fiat 124-derived, Riva did more than any other to put communism on wheels.”

2009 Bruno ExoMars Rover – “Autonomous, self-sustaining and suitable for use on other planets, it is surely the world’s most advanced all-terrain vehicle.”

And the 13th? “I’m not going to give that away,” said May. “You simply have to visit the show and indulge me through my halls and chambers to get to it.”

James May has kept us guessing the final car to make his significant group, encouraging car lovers to make their way to the ExCel show and find out for themselves.

ITV This Morning

ITV This Morning

Although not avid watchers of daytime television we at Limo Broker happened to of caught today’s episode of This Morning, one of the most watched television programmes on the British box.

The programme focused on Brides-to-be and their infamous battle with their weight, wanting to appear perfect on their special day.

Being in the wedding industry ourselves this is a subject that is of great interest to us, paying particular attention to ensuring all brides feel a million dollars when taking their vows.

In a feature entitled Weight Loss Wedding, ITV has honed in on the subject of dieting, offering three lucky brides the opportunity to rid of those extra pounds before they get married.

Taking professional advice and an expert fitness regime, the three brides were today treated to a Range Rover Limousine to take them to boot camp where they will be placed under great observation and encouraged to dramatically change their habits.

The White Range Rover Limousine dazzled down the street, providing the brides will that all-important sense of luxuriousness that achievements should be celebrated with.

We were very happy to see that Weddingcarhire.co.uk were the suppliers of this prestigious limousine, a company renowned for extravagant wedding cars.

In a statement released by the firm they stated just how much they enjoyed working alongside ITV.

‘We were thrilled when we were approached by ITV for this particular job. Weight Loss Wedding is a great idea and we thoroughly support anybody trying to give brides confidence on their wedding day.

We felt that the Range Rover Limousine was a fantastic choice for the three brides to travel to bootcamp in and we look forward to hearing their fantastic weight loss stories’

Although wedding car suppliers ourselves we can understand why ITV chose to use Wedding Car Hire. Having been in the luxury hire industry for many years they have become synonymous with the subject, chauffeuring brides and grooms up and down the country.

They seem to be completely occupying industry news of late having being featured in many publications for their Wedding competition (Wedd-In-Car). If you have not heard of this yet take a look and leave us your comments.

Audi Make Their Mark With $4 million Superbowl Commercial

Today marks the day obsessed with the word ‘Superbowl’. With millions tuning in last night to watch the opening of the great sporting event the carmakers made the most of this opportunity. With Chrysler, Kia and Jaguar all purchasing ad space Audi wanted to create an advert that really stood out.

Superbowl television commercials play a sizeable part in the success such games can influence. With such a great number of viewers brands and providers make it their mission to get a slot in the airing.

Audi did just that, revealing the outcome if you cross a Doberman with a Chihuahua. The advert was centered on the theme of compromise, using the activity of purchasing a breed of dog as an analogy for making a car. The ad progresses the idea that compromising is to be opposed.

“Audi has conceived a never-before-seen creature to show the frightening consequences of bringing compromise into the world,” the car brand says of the new video.

“No computer-generated animals were harmed making this @Audi big game commercial” Sarah McLachlan tweeted after the commercial aired.

It is said that the German carmakers spent a sum of $4 million for the 30-second ad, a pretty steep price tag to say the least.
