Welcome to another round-up of the best branded videos Instagram had to offer in the past month. 

This time we’ll be covering banana boomerangs, puzzle-solving robots and Old Spice guys battling to the death. And much more, of course.

Jamie Oliver

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a banana Jamie Oliver just launched into the air and caught like a boomerang. Pukka mate.

MTV

We’re big fans of Taylor Swift here on the Econsultancy blog team. We’ve got a calendar and everything. In this clip from MTV our heroine does an amusing collaboration with Kanye.

Starbucks

A very seasonal artistic time-lapse effort from Starbucks.

National Geographic

Unless you were hiding in a cave last weekend you’ll have heard about the lunar eclipse on Sunday night. And even then you’d probably have seen it. 

National Geographic put together a brilliant slide show featuring photos of the moon at every stage during the eclipse.

Old Spice

I love Old Spice’s marketing even if I’ve never actually donned its manly scent. This clip features a couple of Old Spice guys clubbing the parfum out of each other with two different types of aftershave. 

One is on horseback and the other on a motorcycle, obviously.

HBO

Who doesn’t love Game of Thrones? This clip from HBO gives fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes peak at the show’s Premiere Party in San Francisco.

Lego

Another brilliant use of time-lapse, this time by Lego. Watch the Louvre come to life in just 15 seconds.

KFC

I covered KFC’s new ‘fryer-side chats’ with Colonel Sanders last month. This is the first follow-up, in which the colonel makes the dubious claim that eating plenty of fried chicken prolongs your life rather than dramatically shortening it.

Go-Pro

What’s more gnarly than skydiving straight into the middle of the Burning Man festival with a Go-Pro strapped to your face? Nothing, that’s what.

Coca-Cola

This cinemagraph from Coca-Cola makes the list simply because it’s so visually appealing, which is surely the point of Instagram.

Red Bull

This is a fantastic point-of-view shot from Red Bull showing a motocross racer riding over various different types of terrain. Might make you puke if you get motion sickness.

Intel

If you had plans to become a professional Rubik’s Cube solver, think again. This robot can almost certainly do it better than you.

Audi

Even if you’re not a big car fan you’ll struggle not to be impressed by this clip, with driving and camera work that could be straight out of a James Bond movie.

Converse

Converse uses colour to create this ridiculously eye-catching and somewhat mesmerising clip to promote its limited edition Chuck Taylor shoes.

Firebox

We’re giving some love to a smaller business this month with this clip from Firebox featuring one of those weird Segway/skateboard things that everyone in London seems to scoot about on these days.
