The brief snippet, dubbed “He Is Here,” doesn’t reveal much of interest, unless you have a rodent fetish. The clip begins with a woman smiling as someone videotapes her, then quickly cuts to a building grate being overrun by rats.

The action quickly moves to the interior or a building, in a scene punctuated by — yup — more rats.
