Chicks in their underwear online now

Hard news? Nah, but everyone needs a little light relief

It's time to grab hold of your input device (Oi, we mean mouse you mucky-minded bugger – Ed) and get ready for the next live Web cast from top US lingerie firm Victoria's Secret. Famous for causing servers to go down all over the place during its last live Web cast at the NFL Superbowl, the lace-clad lovelies of Victoria's Secret are set to do it again in May 2000 at Cannes. We first spotted this story on ZDNet UK but when we clicked on it we couldn't get it up. Victoria's Secret is, we are led to understand, planning to push into ecommerce in a big way next year. It already has a Web site, which allows you to order from its catalogue. It has a number of existing sections such as Bare Essentials and the Bra salon. If you want to look at pictures of young women in their underwear, you could click here, but don't come crying to us if you get into hot water for inappropriate use of company IT systems. ®
