IT IS RELATED TO METAL GEAR!
Right you see when The Patriots got Big Bosses DNA he was in a coma. This trailer could be what his mind was going through while under the knife. One thing though that I don't get is Mantis. That doesn't look like Physco Mantis, that looks more like the Mantis Doll from MGS4.
Another thing to note is the Title "The Phantom Pain"
Remove "Phantom" and you've got "The Pain" a member of the Cobras in MGS3.
The Phantom could also be a reference to the quote "From FOX two Phantoms were born". It could al;so be refering to The Sorrow.
Moby Dick Studios doesn't actually exist. Jokaim when you mix the letters around spells "Kojima"
Update: There's a lot of people saying this is hinting at a WW2 setting. This is not true, look at the equipment the soldiers carry, look at the chopper at the end of the trailer. No way they are from WW2.
Another MGS4 reference look at the way the guy is crawling, looks very similar to the way snake crawled through the Microwave oven tunnel in MGS4.
Update 2: A lot of people are also saying that Mantis is in the trailer. This is not true. Mantis might be skinny, but he's not that skinny and he's a lot taller. The "Floating" man looks more like the Sorrow/Mantis Dolls from MGS4. It's not the pain, the pain is too big, and it's not the sorrow for the same reason. However if one looks at who's riding the unicorn, you should be able to see Mantis' Arms (from MGS4). The unicorn it's self could be a representation of The Boss' Horse.
One thing to note is that the trailer shows pain, fear and fury. Which are members of the Cobra unit.
As for the British flag in the hospital, a lot of people are saying that this is a reference to Zero, which is a possibility but everyone has ignored Dr.Strangelove from Peace Walker, she was into AI (and she was British) and it's possible that the whole thing is a VR simulation created by Strange Love.
