J.J. Abrams' "Force For Change" put up another video with teases of wonderful prizes like advance screenings of the movie, but let's face it - there's no reason to bury the lede.  While filming in the UK, Mr. Abrams decided to give us all a sneak peak of a new vehicle which is probably the absolutely best way to get anyone to watch a video for a charity.  Congratulations, UNICEF!
