For the unveiling, Jimmy Kimmel Live set up a towering screen on the streets of California and, when the moment was right, pressed a button to reveal a trio of bikini-clad models, this year's cover girls: Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen and Nina Agdal.
"Oh my god!" Kimmel exclaimed, and rightfully so.
These bathing beauties are the first threesome to appear on the cover of the iconic issue since 1994's "Dream Team" of Kathy Ireland, Elle MacPherson and Rachel Hunter.
The 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue's anniversary edition hits newsstands and goes live online on Feb. 18.
Below, watch the rest of Kimmel's reaction to the sunny and stunning cover.
