Victoria's Secret Angels to star in Super Bowl XLIX commercial
For next month's Super Bowl XLIX, a few Victoria's Secret Angels will be starring in a new 30-second spot for the lingerie brand during the big game on February 1.
Nothing unusual for Gisele Bündchen – always supporting her quarterback husband Tom Brady – her Victoria's Secret friends, including Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Behati Prinsloo, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima, join her on the field as they sport football gear for the new TV spot – which sources estimate could cost $4.5 million.
This is not the American brand's first time at the Super Bowl. In 1999, the company aired its first Super Bowl commercial promoting the webcast of its popular fashion show. And in 2008, Victoria's Secret ran a Super Bowl ad to promote its Valentine's Day collection, a special theme it's using again for 2015.
Ahead of this year's game commercial, a 'Don't Drop the Ball' video was posted on YouTube today and features two teams playing football in red and white jerseys. With the winning team revealed as Victoria's Secret Angels Lima, Swanepoel, Aldridge, Prinsloo and Doutzen Kroes – reminding viewers: "Don't drop the ball. It's not Valentine's Day without Victoria's Secret."
