The surprises are part of the fun, so we won't spoil the three videos below. Check them out:

It's a great way of messing with the form. And while the stunts and gags are certainly the high points, it's impressive how the videos actually get the product features across as well. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the campaign below.
