Teaser video shows spy photographer explaining his trade with a camouflaged next-generation Malibu standing nearby.

UPDATE:  Since the writing of this article GM has "accidentally" released an image.

Here is some more teaser material from GM on the upcoming 2013 Chevrolet Malibu.

This time it's a video and we get to see a camouflaged Malibu sitting idly by while spy photographer Jim Dunne explains the tactics of his trade.

It seems, though, that Chevy has no problem with spy photographers for this next-generation Malibu and will take all the attention it can get for the new mid-sized model.

Co-opting a spy photographer to appear in your video is a clever move but the Malibu better measure up against the competition, models such as the Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry, when it comes out.

The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu will be unveiled at the Auto Shanghai motor show next week and at the New York auto show a couple of days later.

The model goes into production in January 2012 with sales starting later that year.
