Plot / Description

"The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - The Burn Room" 
This commercial begins in the past with a young boy riding his bike down the street. He has a playing card attached to the spokes so the bike makes noise as it rolls along. The sound and the motion of the gears transforms into a darker scene where an old fashioned film and tape players are running. We see it is some sort of spy/intelligence office and a man is carrying a top secret file. There are people redacting files with black markers and looking over newspaper clippings about UFOs. In some back room where the man with the file is heading, we see blood pouring down the walls where something is being held including a spacecraft. 
The scene switches back to the boy on his bike. The bike is suddenly thrown to the ground and we see the boy looking up at a huge floating block in the sky. The bottom of the block opens, and we cut back to the intelligence office of someone watching a recording of this happening. The evidence of this film is destroyed in a fire along with the other redactions.
