A man walks towards the camera in a neon lit hallway. He stops and looks off into the distance. He looks down, clearly sad about something. The word betrayal flashes across the screen.
No, that's not a pitch from parody account Perfume Ads For Sale on Twitter. It is the content of a video Avengers star Tom Hiddleston shared recently, and which had fans scratching their heads.
Hiddleston tweeted the video with no caption or comment.
Hiddleston fans were not amused by his cryptic manner of communication.

Turns out, Hiddleston is going to be starring in a play entitled Betrayal by Harold Pinter, as some fans had rightly speculated based on the mysterious video.
The play – a story about an affair between two married people – is opening March 2019 in London's West End.
Well played Hiddleston, you cryptic man of mystery.
