In the late 80’s and early 90’s, there was an old joke about TV spots that could be heard in agencies around the world. “Hey, I’ve got a great idea for a commercial…let’s get [insert name of A-list movie director] to do it.”
Now, don’t get us wrong, there have been some great ones (Apple’s 1984 sits on the top of that pile). But this Victoria’s Secret effort from Michael Bay is not one of them. Not even close.
Yes, the man who insists on a barrage of slo-mo shots, explosions and military aircraft in every film has brought this gift to the world of lingerie. Michael Bay fans will not be disappointed. Anyone else with any common sense will have a hard time keeping a straight face for this dog. It’s hard to believe that 90 seconds filled with supermodels in lingerie could suck so much.
Boy, does it suck.
Oh, and he even manages to ruin it for fans of Iron Man by using a piece of music from the soundtrack. Watch for yourself.
