Well the idea behind it is this:
If the defense just assumes they're going to kick and doesn't go out there to cover the guys, then the offense will just snap it and throw it over for 2 easy points. Obviously, everybody knows this will happen and the defenders follow them out and then follow them back before the snap, but it's just a way to see if you can catch the other team off guard real quick.
