Review of Victoria's Secret Show Durable Link to this BLOG
Victoria's Secret Show

I watched the entire hour of  the Heaven on Earth Victoria's Secret show last night. It was entertaining while it lasted (it went off too fast), but had very little lasting impression (quite unlike the famous 1999 Superbowl ad.).

My favorite parts:

  • Endorsement by a schoolboy who claimed the VS catalog helps him with his homework. Very funny.

  • The underwear so small, it fits into a wristwatch.

  • The selection criteria to be  a VS model -- they need to be young, tall, gorgeous, sexy, voluptuous, healthy, radiant, graceful, energetic, and other criteria that I forgot now. Isn't that just like women asking for a handsome, healthy, intelligent, sensitive, and rich man? There's no such thing, everyone's a compromise!

  • Marc Anthony's "Tragedy" performance (link to lyric)

The show was controversial due to its soft-porn nature, and also because one of the models also promoted fur. 

I'd rate Just My Size (a competing underwear company) advertisements, which featured normal women, ahead of this multi-million dollar extravaganza. For all the hype, the show had so little impact (on viewers and I am sure as it will on VS's bottomline).

Meanwhile, in another part of the world, there were riots against a beauty pageant.
