The annual Victoria's Secret fashion show helped provide electricity to the New York Army National Guard whose headquarters had lost power in Superstorm Sandy.
The televised fashion show is held at the Regiment's armory annually and the show's producers brought along eight generators just to power the extravagant event, reports Wired.

When the New York Army National Guard's 69th Infantry Regiment's headquarters needed power, officials appealed to Victoria's Secret producers for help on Tuesday morning and by 7 p.m. that night the armory had power again, reports the site.
"We were dead in the water until Victoria's Secret showed up," Capt. Bredan Gendron, the Regiment's operations officer, told Wired.
The show is being taped Wednesday night and will air on Dec. 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
