Douglas Adams provided my official explanation:
"Teasers are usually rich kids with nothing to do. They cruise around looking for planets which haven't made interstellar contact yet and buzz them."
"Buzz them?" Arthur began to feel that Ford was enjoying making life difficult for him.
"Yeah," Ford said, "They buzz them. They find some isolated spot with very few people around, then land right by some poor unsuspecting soul whom no ones ever going to believe and then strut up and down in front of him wearing silly antennae on their head and making beep beep noises. Rather childish really."
