This is basically a two minute video showing how creative Sports Illustrated has gotten in recent years in their swimsuit issue. Back in the 80′s the magazine was just girls in traditional swimsuits, but once magazines like Maxim and FHM came out that showed more skin, SI knew they had to change it up. The problem was that they couldn’t go as racy as those other magazines or men across the country wouldn’t be able to pretend like it was like every other SI issue every year to their wives. So they decided to just replace bathing suits with random objects on a beach, and have girls lie naked behind them. Whoever thought this up in the board meeting should be given a promotion. Actually, I’m sure he did. The guy who thought up this and the guy who thought up body paint should be co-presidents of America in fact. Okay I’ll stop. Just watch the video. It’s theoretically safe for work I guess, if it would also be okay for you to look closely at the SI Swimsuit issue cover to cover at your desk.
