Welcome to our monthly round-up of the best branded Instagram videos from the last four weeks.

We have everything from extreme stunts, wistful reminiscing and Star Wars. All the good stuff.

LEGO

Say Happy Father’s Day by murdering your evil master in order to save your whiny, womp rat of a son.

General Electric

This is a nicely created photo montage of mechanical engineer Eric King soundtracked by his own short interview. However it is largely impossible to resist singing “he likes big engines and he cannot lie” as soon as the video starts.

GoPro

Experience what it’s like to be the pole! 

Get locked in a dark equipment cupboard for nine months, come out for a brief period of sunshine, enjoy the few seconds of exhilaration on your way to the jump, then never actually make it all the way over and fall back on your arse.

Zara

In all fairness it is difficult to dance to Belle and Sebastian.

Coca-Cola

All best friends have a secret handshake. This one can only end in a pants-ruining explosion of fizzy liquid.

NASA

I would explain what’s going on here, but I feel it’s best if you just click through. It’s something to do with solar flares I think.

Marks and Spencer

So if Colin the Caterpillar lives on a diet of sweets and he is in fact made of sweets, does that mean that… I’m not going to finish this train of thought.

Converse

Iggy Pop offers studio advice for younger musicians. At no point is there a warning to say “do not ever do what Iggy Pop has done to himself, he is immortal, any mortal-beings following his path would be dead six times over.” That is a bit lengthy I suppose, it is only 15 seconds long.

Red Bull

He must be coded with the same DNA that Ellen Ripley was in Alien Res… Hmmm… I may have revealed too much about myself there.

Ford

Inside the mouth of a four-year old?

I'm surprised your list of branded Instagram videos didn't include a cinemagraph. June saw top brands like Mercedes put cinemagraphs created with Flixel to work https://instagram.com/p/2_9yHmLSDo/
