More information

By opening up the original Zed video teaser in a text viewer, we learned very early that Garen, Sona, and Vi were slated to have similar teasers. We also were able to find references to "DeadEye" and the name "Jhin" - while not confirmed, Jhin is assumed to be the name of whatever this is teasing.
The Chinese page for Zed's teaser also mentioned the timing/order of the tease - Zed, Sona, Garen, Vi.

Speaking of "Jhin", the url for the Garena assets includes "events/20151228_jhin/Zed.gif."

Gypsylord also commented "!" in the Zed reddit thread. Suspicious!

Gypsylord also commented "!!" in the Sona reddit thread. DOUBLE Suspicious!

Gypsylord also commented "!!!" in the Garen reddit thread. TRIPLE Suspicious!

In response to the Vi teaser, Gypsylord teased : "Welp, secret is out. Vi confirmed to have hands. What a buildup!!!1"

While not relative to the teaser, Bastien Lecouffe Deharme is the artist for Sona's teaser. 

[NEW] A few interesting bits for the teasers were posted on the Riot Thailand page. Although they have been removed, several redditors translated them here.

[NEW] A few more posts were put up on the LATAM boards! See this comment for a fan translation.
