‘For Your Eyes Only’ Photo Shoot in the Metro

Posted by & filed under Media, News.

One intrepid reporter went searching for the naked truth at our For Your Eyes Only photo shoot. Metro‘s Laura Davis was slightly hesitant to get her kit off in front of the cameras in order to take a series of intimate photographs. But, like everyone who undertakes the experience, she was soon at ease and flinging off accessories as if they were in some way diseased. Read all about Laura’s adventures under cover (or not) and see more of her photos from the day RIGHT HERE. You can buy a voucher for your own shoot here.

Romantic Break For… Three?

Posted by & filed under Media, News.

For possibly the first time in the British Isles we’re attempting to show some solidarity with our filthy foreign neighbours, in an experience of supreme sauciness. That’s right, we want to send you a friend and another friend on a delightful weekend away! Together! Yes, that sort of together. The kind of together that occurs when a Mummy and a Daddy love each other very much, so much in fact that they decide to get someone else involved. We’re offering you the chance to break all sorts of taboos at a luxury 5-star resort in the Lake District, featuring champagne and chocolates on arrival, a room decorated with rose petals and fairy lights, followed by a slap up Cumbrian Breakfast the next morning. If you are not too ashamed too eat. You will also receive delicious chocolates, which may break the tension slightly. ‘Oh look, chocolates’, you can say to your companions, ‘that’s nice’ you can add awkwardly, before slowly closing the door and dwelling on what is about to happen. If you haven’t hurled your laptop across the room in blind, morally-outraged fury, this may be the perfect package for you. And you. And also *gasp* you! Enjoy this unique, thoroughly non-British,…

Zombie Boot Camp: Sold Out For Now

Posted by & filed under News.

Update: Zombie Boot Camp is now back on sale! Due to overwhelming demand, our Zombie Boot Camp experience is sold out… at least, for now. It seems the British public’s blood-lust for eliminating undead hordes knows no bounds. And who can blame you? Zombie Boot Camp is dead good. In fact it’s undead good! I’m so proud of that zinger, that I am now going to have a lie down. As a result, Zombie Boot Camp is currently booked up for months. What can you, a heavily interested Wish.co.uk patron, do about it? Here are all the answers you need. Q: What are you doing about it? A: Don’t panic – we are working day and night, dusk till dawn, to organise extra dates so you can shoot reanimated types in the Midlands.  Obviously, when we say day and night, we do take time off. Jeremy Kyle isn’t going to watch himself (though we expect that he does). And there’s the regular naps, rest periods and ‘time outs’ that we require. But when we are not doing all those things, we are trying to arrange more Zombie Boot Camp experience days. Q: What can I do in the meantime? A: Sign up to…

Zombie Boot Camp in the Metro

  Plucky reporter Jill Reilly faced the horrors of our Zombie Boot Camp for Metro and lived to tell the tale… Despite failing to engage her weapon and being generally disturbed by the whole zombie mayhem thing, she survived the ordeal and needed to tell the world all about here exploits, as she did  RIGHT HERE. After you’ve read about the fine, thrilling time she had, have a crack at it yourself HERE.

Roll Your Own Cannonball Run

Posted by & filed under How To....

The Cannonball Run wasn’t just the greatest film ever made (with the second greatest being Cannonball Run II). Before it was the highest peak of cinematic engineering, it was an actual, real and non-pretend road race from coast to coast, with the fastest mofo crowned the winner, while the rest of the pack took their own lives in shame. But surely a Prius owning, hummus eating, ‘Sister Act’ loving chap like you couldn’t ever be involved in anything as cool as a Cannonball Run, right? Probably, but just in case, here are some pointers. History of Cannonball Run The ‘Run’ or ‘Cannonball Run’ as it’s also known, is named after Erwin G. “Cannon Ball” Baker, who was both famed for driving quickly from coast to coast and having the middle name “Cannon Ball” which was quite unusual for the time. In honour of this great man and as a reaction to the recently enforced American speeding laws, car journalist Brock Yates drove New York to Los Angeles in 40 hours. Then he asked other people to do the same thing and tried to beat them while doing it. This was the both the first ever Cannonball Run and the first…

The Ins & Outs of Owning a Tank

Posted by & filed under Infographics.

Imagine a highly maneuverable, armed-to-the-teeth gun boat. But on land! Sounds incredible doesn’t it, but these metallic killing earth beasts do exist. They’re called tanks and they’re brilliant. Nothing else with a turret – castles, chateaus, forts – can compare to this supreme caterpillar-tracked, bullet-spewing murder car. But surely these armoured fighting monsters can only be owned by millionaires like Richard Branstons and the Chuckle Brothers? Probably. But if you wanted to own a tank, what would you do and where would it be? Here’s how…

Wish.co.uk: Future 50 Short-list Holders!

Posted by & filed under Media, News.

Swimsuit season has not been kind to us here at Wish.co.uk. We simply can’t believe how out of shape we’ve become and now that new beachwear we purchased for our big trip to the Canaries now appears mis-shapen and vindictive. But our shattered confidence received a much needed boost by news that we had made the shortlist for the Real Business Future 50 award, in conjunction with Red Bull. As you will all be aware, the Future 50 list chronicles Britain’s most promising and exciting startups. And we are one of them! Sadly our celebrations involved a case of Cava and an industrial sized tub of Nutella, so joy was short-lived. See a full list of the companies short-listed RIGHT HERE.
