Victoria's Secret first Super Bowl commercial since 2008 will roll at this year's game. But the above video, which is called "Don't Drop the Ball" in reference to Valentine's Day, is a completely separate spot from the commercial that will air during the Super Bowl XLIX. It's as ridiculously flawless as it is flawlessly ridiculous. At first glance, the models look like a tiny but legitimate group of Vince Lombardi Trophy hopefuls, until the helmets come off and textbook hair flips ensue. But the clip is uncharacteristically modest for VS, leaving the the world to wonder: Roughly how uncomfortable will we be sitting between to Uncle Steve and a bowl of nachos come February 1?

Update: A former version of this article reported that this video was a "teaser" for the impending Super Bowl commercial. However, Victoria's Secret has informed Racked that it is a football-themed video that's unrelated to the Super Bowl ad.
