Male TIME Staffers Make Like Victoria’s Secret Models

It’s a funny idea – gather together a group of TIME male employees and have them sample the “Sleekify” workout that Michael Olajide Jr. of Aerospace gym uses to keep some of tonight’s strutting Victoria’s Secret models in tip-top shape. Narrating the video below and appearing alongside his colleagues is homepage editor Nick Carbone.

Joining Carbone for this workout break: Web producer David Winograd; reporter Josh Sanburn; senior editor Ishaan Tharoor; staff writer Sean Gregory; reporter Chris Matthews; senior editor, photo and interactive Jonathan Woods; writer Andrew Katz; and associate photo editor Tanner Curtis.

Carbone and Sanburn, perhaps in an act of quiet defiance, both keep their ties on. All that’s missing is information about when the internal office bet was made (with, we’re guessing, a group of female TIME staffers) and how it was lost.
