You might remember a few months back when we posted some pics of Kate Upton doing a photoshoot in Antarctica on the deck of an ice-covered boat. The images bundled with those photos seemed to suggest that this was some sort of Oreo-themed photo shoot she was doing, but it turns out that was just a clever cover for what it really was - the photo shoot for her 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. Someone over at TMZ managed to get a pic of the new edition, apparently as it was being shipped to stores, featuring Kate and her two best friends draped in an winter coat with glaciers and shit behind her. Well played, Sports Illustrated. I think most people had forgotten all about this. This will be Kate's second-in-a-row cover for the swimsuit issue, which is a pretty good feat. This time around they're apparently spanning the globe for T&A backgrounds, rather than just limiting themselves to equatorial paradises. I still think it's kind of a goofy setting though. One of the coldest, most uninhabitable places on Earth is the backdrop for hot women in bikinis? Maybe if you're one of those Polar Bear Club psychos. Me, I'm just fine with beaches and palm trees.
