Bras! Explosions! Michael Bay's Victoria's Secret Ad




    According to Gawker, Michael Bay has actually been directing Victoria's Secret commercials for years, but the latest -- which debuted during the Victoria's Secret fashion show -- is like an action movie in lingerie, complete with helicopters and big explosions. In a word: genius.

    From the thumping music to the ladies parading around in front of various slick-and-shiny gadgets (cars, airplane, and yes, the aforementioned helicopter), we have a feeling this particular ad is geared more toward the men-folk than the ladies --especially since the ad is promoting giving the gift of Victoria's Secret (the beginning promises "One Gift ... A Thousand Fantasies"). That said, we'll admit we watched the ad more than once.
