"What is sexy?" Asked and answered.
It must be October. Retailer Victoria's Secret has come up with another "What is sexy?" spot to warm audiences up for its annual fashion show , which airs November 15 on CBS. ABC, which hosted last year's controversial special, passed on the event this year.

The new spot, created in-house and, like last year's, shot by Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay, features Brazilian supermodel Giselle Bundchen modeling a few scraps of lingerie in a penthouse, observed only by a circling helicopter and, of course, a mysterious stranger. The spot also features music licensed from drum and bass act Sol-i via New York music house Bang Music & Sound Design. Bang did not merely set up the deal, however. Rather, Bang released Leap Before You Look -- Sol-i's debut, from which the track is taken -- earlier this year. Aging thrashers might also be interested, or perhaps surprised, to note that Sol-i is the current pseudonym of one Tim Leitch, former drummer of seminal L.A. punk outfit Fear.
