Explosion, Assault, Ostriches

Somehow I missed this video from 2012. Theorized at the time to be a viral marketing ploy. But I can't find any evidence it was ever resolved. Can WU-vies pin down a definitive answer?

So that's where the Lotto ad with the guy on an ostrich in a big box store comes from....

I found this description: It's viral-type marketing in Mexico for the Stride "secret flavor". You can see the customer buy gum and start chewing a piece. He then starts talking to the clerk about the flavor. Mysterio and ostriches burst in and attack the customer for trying to reveal the flavor.

A bit better quality video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qH2CfK2H6g

Sounds pretty definitive, VIC. Thanks!
