Skip navigation's 5 second challenge

What can you do in 5 seconds?

We challenged the British public to show us what they could do in 5 seconds to coincide with the launch of QuickQuote; a new service which can return a car insurance quote in seconds.

Please note we are no longer offering QuickQuote via text message. You can get a QuickQuote online here.

Entrants were asked to shoot a quick video with their mobile phone or camera, showing us what they could do in just 5 seconds. Then upload their entry to YouTube, and email or tweet the YouTube URL to us.

The most impressive videos received were added to our 5 Second Challenge playlist and put to public vote via YouTube slam.

We asked members of the team here at what they could do in 5 seconds. This is the result.

See the terms and conditions here.
