Since the Fast Car photoshoot at the office a couple of weeks ago, I’ve spent every spare moment (I don’t get that many, which is why it has taken 2 weeks) looking at the hours of footage we took on the day and editing it down into something you might actually want to watch – here it is:
Last Friday we had an interesting day at the office as FastCar descended on East Winch Hall to take some photos of the Fluxbabes. Scary and Trev from the mag, along with photographer Dan and make-up artist Holly Newberry – yes, that Holly Newberry (!WARNING! Links Are Not Safe For Work!).
Babes, Charlie, Jemma, Laura, Sam and FluXFactor winner Gemma were chosen to represent the Flux Babes for this shoot, and all did really well in front of the cameras.
We shot a behind the scenes video, which we are editing at the moment, and will post that on the Flux Babes site, along with photos from the day.
Meanwhile, look out for the Flux Babes on your newsagents shelves in the next couple of months, and don’t forget, you can see loads of them at the French Car Show on the 22nd of June.
No, it’s not Gerry’s usual reason for canceling an important underwriters’ meeting.
Trinity Lane, an underwriting company we deal with quite a lot, are, being stuffy insurance bigwigs, not exactly ‘down with the kids’, and don’t have a proper website yet, though I’m told they are getting one.
Unfortunately (and amusingly) if you do a web search for their name, the all-powerful Google brings back the Internet Movie Database profile of an.. ahem.. adult film star, who has appeared in such silver screen classics as “Love Thrust” and “Gushers 9″.
I managed to find a (clean) picture of the lady in question, who probably doesn’t realise she shares a name with an insurance company – and I have to say she’s not a patch on any of the Flux Babes. And because she doesn’t work here, she’s not eligible to become a Flux Babe, although she can, like you, vote for some Flux Babes here. And like you she could maybe even win a SatNav plus some VIP tickets to the Adrian Flux French Car Show, which might be some compensation for all those bizarre calls she’s probably getting about transferring no claims bonus.

Customer service boss and Flux Babe extraordinaire, Jenny, is probably going to kill me, so if I don’t post for some time, you’ll know why.
As mentioned in my last post, the flux babes site is now live and you still have a little time to try and win yourself a free calendar featuring the girls, who, of course all work for us.
But we’re not the only insurance brokers with a calendar out this year. Kwik-Fit have also released a calendar featuring staff members, and their employees are featured posing stark naked.
I’ll leave it to you to decide which you would rather have hung on your wall…
Hopefully your answer is the same as mine!

We’ve started putting some of the better ones onto our Flickr, here.
I was there with a few of the other Flux staff, including the Flux Babes. Loads of the visitors were amazed when they realised that every single one of the Flux Babes works in a regular job for us, and they actually do know about insurance.
We also took some videos with various car owners, club members and other folk we met at the show, and we’ll be putting those online soon. I’ll post it here as soon as they’re ready.
If you were there, we hope you had a great time, and hope to see you next year!
If you weren’t, you missed out big time – get down there next year, or you’ll regret it.
