Sports Illustrated recently dropped a vault of behind-the-scene footage from the 2014 issue that clocked in at just over two and a half hours.

The video is titled, “Gigi Hadid, Kate Upton & SIS Legends Strip Down, Go Behind The Scenes,” and if you have an afternoon to kill you can get it down with what is essentially a straight featured film from Sports Illustrated. (SLIDESHOW: 72 Times Sara Underwood Went Topless)

SI captioned the video, “Gigi Hadid takes you to the Jersey Shore, Kate Upton defy’s gravity in Cape Canaveral, Chrissy Teigen and Irina Shayk explore the secluded beaches of Madagascar, and SI Swimsuit’s biggest legends take you behind the scenes of the obstacles and pleasures of making the Sports Illustrated 2014 swimsuit issue.”


Pretty crazy to consider that Sports Illustrated is dropping films with runtimes similar to a Harry Potter film. Given how popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime are, it might not be the wildest idea for SI to start streaming all-access videos to their shoots, similar to what HBO does with “Hard Knocks” for football.
