Kate Upton Floats In Zero Gravity

Sports Illustrated brave a new frontier in looking at breasts

OK, so here’s the deal.

Over in America, it’s the 50th anniversary of the legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.



To celebrate, the magazine flew the only slightly less-legendary model Kate Upton 34,000 feet into the sky and whirled her around really fast, achieving a state of zero gravity.



As publicity stunts go, this one needs little explanation. Take the most famous breasts in America, have them bounce around Apollo 11-style, film the whole thing and let the internet do the rest.



The resultant perv-fest has been lapped up by everyone from celebrity news outlets, to rival men’s sites, to technology websites pretending it’s all a good excuse to remind their readers about the science behind space travel.



We, of course, are little better. But rather than show you 2 minutes of Upton trying to look sexy while getting mildly concussed (a feat that, to be fair, she more or less pulls off), we’re rather more taken with this behind-the-scenes edit of the whole affair.



In it you also see Upton’s small army of photographers, stylists and bubble-blowers, banging into each other like atoms as they brave a new frontier in showing the 21-year-old in a bikini.
