Bob Dylan has become the unlikely new face of American lingerie giants Victoria's Secret after agreeing to appear in a new TV ad.

The grizzled rocker initially agreed to let Victoria's Secret bosses use his 1997 hit LOVE SICK in their campaign, but then surprised them by accepting an invitation to appear alongside lingerie-clad, angel winged model ADRIANA LIMA in TV commercials.

The ads will run in America for three weeks, and, if successful, they'll return later in the year.

Victoria's Secret spokesman ED RAZEK says, "We were really trying to achieve the ultimate romantic aspiration - it's Venice, it's Dylan, it's an incredible palazzo, it's an angel... His voice just works against those kinds of images."
