Like everything else in lower Manhattan, Hurricane Sandy knocked out power at the US Nation Guard's armoury. The 69th Infantry Regiment would've been screwed. Victoria's Secret saved their arses. Here's how the servicemen got their groove back.
Every year, the lingerie company tapes its fashion show at the regiment's armoury, and this year, it happened to coincide with Sandy. For the show, they brought eight 500W generators to the armoury. The Victoria's Secret producers were happy to help and by Tuesday night, the armoury was fully powered. Hurray for bras! [Wired]
