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.
