Over at Bloody-Disgusting, they’ve added two new videos to their Cloverfield canon, one called "Incredible" and the other called "Witness." Both will be used by Paramount as TV commercials, especially during the football playoffs this weekend. "Incredible" doesn’t show the monster, but it does show the Statue of Liberty’s head flying down an avenue.
