Google’s upcoming Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 devices have made a seemingly accidental appearance in a number of awesome new Android ads. The three clips, which are all less than 30 seconds long, were published on the Android website on Monday night before being quickly removed.

Now, these are cartoon versions of the new Nexus devices, so they don’t give much away. But thanks to the leaked images we’ve already seen, it’s pretty clear what they are. The image above, for instance, clearly depicts the giant Nexus 6, which has Android L buttons and front-facing speakers above and below its display.

Here’s the video in which it appears.

In the video below, around 00:06, we get a brief glimpse at the Nexus 9, a new tablet that’s being built by HTC. Again, we don’t see much, but its large camera sensor and square form factor lines up with recent rumors that have indicated the device will introduce a new aspect ratio previously unseen on a Nexus tablet.

The final clip doesn’t appear to feature any new Nexus devices, but it’s just as good as the others, so we thought you might want to see it anyway.

Given that Google quickly pulled these videos after they were posted, we can only assume they weren’t supposed to be seen until later this month — after the Nexus 6 and the Nexus 9 have received their official unveilings. If recent rumors are accurate, that should happen this week, but Google is yet to announce an event.
