Panasonic G2 Commercial Apparently Shot with a Canon 5D Mark II

So why would a commercial for Panasonic’s Lumix G2 camera touting it’s ability to shoot 720p HD be shot with the Canon 5D Mark II?
I think maybe the PR department is kicking itself for releasing this behind-the-scenes video of the making of the commercial. Watch and you’ll see the Canon being used in many of the scenes.
Why would they not use their own camera?

I wonder just how much of the commercial was actually shot on a Lumix? Another camera, the GoPro Hero is used in a very creative way. They attached it on an extension to the baseplate of the Lumix creating a great visual effect as the actor moves while holding the G2 in his hand. Very cool!
