Anyone else seeing strange new SERP formats?[ Edited ]

Has anyone else been seeing some strange results page formats in the Ad Preview Tool lately?
I've noticed a few oddities recently with the Ad Preview Tool:
- More frequently showing SERPs without ads
- Map pack in the middle of the SERP (sandwiched between organic with 1-2 ads on the bottom)
- and now this, from top to bottom: Twitter panel, 8 organic results, Top stories, map pack (and no ads)
In my opinion, the search term is pretty odd to warrant a Twitter panel and top news stories...
Anyone seeing other strange formats?

This seems to be another format (among several) Google is testing.
I have seen SERP with no ads. Remember that there is a threshold of ad rank for an ad to be shown.
>>" ...That's why every ad needs to meet a minimum Ad Rank threshold in order to show. You might often find that there are no ads on a page, even when an advertiser is bidding on the query that generated those results
