Five Victoria's Secret models, including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel, don football uniforms and helmets in the ad, which will air in the game's fourth quarter.

In its second Super Bowl ad in 2008, Victoria’s Secret promoted its Valentine’s Day collection and had record-breaking 103.7 million viewers.
