Here are some of the finest branded Instagram videos from May 2014. 

Taking in everything from Mini’s massive charm, even more massive nuclear lizard battles and Google’s blasé attitude to its own product.

It’s a cavalcade of tiny thrills and spills.

Like watching Prince on a trampoline.


By far one of the best Instagram videos I’ve seen since the format was introduced. This is a masterclass of direction, editing, sound design and wouldn’t look as good on any other channel.


In the US they celebrate Mother’s Day on the wron… sorry I mean different day. Ford, a company that increasingly can do no wrong on social, put together this charming series of posts where kids describe their mum’s ideal cars.


A perfectly concise way to show off Adidas’s new photo print app.


Carrying on last month’s #asktheNEWMINI campaign, May saw some fantastic Instagram videos as Mini hit its stride.

Playstation tells you how to join in on a multiplayer game online. Thanks Playstation!
