October has been an exciting month for social media in general, as you’ll know if you’ve read our latest monthly social campaigns and stories round-up (how’s that for a shameless plug?). 

But this post is all about Instagram video, and we’ve got some seriously creative stuff to show you from October. 

This month we’ve got sugary werewolves, squashed fruit, some Halloween promotions and plenty more. 

I’ve deliberately left out anything Back-to-the-Future-related because despite being a fan of the films the whole ‘day’ just annoyed me.  

MTV

Obviously we had to include some Halloween-related stuff in here, so here’s a somewhat psychedelic effort from MTV.

Lego

When mankind finally destroys itself completely, the last person alive will use their final gasping breath to exclaim, ‘At least we had Star Wars and Lego.’  

Excuse me while I go watch the new Force Unleashed trailer for the 27th time today…

GoPro

This clip demonstrates GoPro’s Quadcopter drone and stabilisation system, and I kept expecting a trail of bullets to appear behind the guy on the quad bike.

National Geographic

This is an incredible clip of the dawn mist melting away above Machu Picchu. I mean if this doesn’t impress you then you might want to consider a personality transplant.

Jamie Oliver

This clip of someone who may or may not be everyone’s favourite wide-boy chef squeezing a blood orange is proof that playing things in slow motion makes them entertaining.

Old Spice

Another Halloween-focused clip here, in which the Old Spice guy does a pretty dang fine impression of Robbie Williams in that music video that got banned all those years ago.

Red Bull

Another fantastic point-of-view clip from Red Bull. I wouldn’t recommend watching this if you have a phobia of either heights or almost-certain death.

Intel 

Remember those little plasma globe things that used to be all the rage around the same time that lava lamps were? Well now imagine that in robot form.

Converse

What’s not to love about a sweet pair of kicks floating through space?

Coca-Cola

Another Halloween clip, this time from Coca-Coca, in which a can of everyone’s favourite source of tooth decay grows hair like a werewolf.

Nasa

This clip from Nasa’s Hubble telescope reveals a new high-resolution map of Jupiter. Pretty interesting if you’re a space nerd like me, which you should be.

Ford

There are enough growling engines sounds in this clip to excite even the most half-hearted of car enthusiasts.

Not to mention some really neat video editing.

I bet none of theses companies could accurately determine the ROI of theses campaigns.

But hey, as long as everything is looking pretty and the shareholders are happy then whoo-hoo!

Sadly, many small business owners think this style of marketing is how things should be done.

Go check out direct-response if you want to get real, measurable results.

Like the 'King of Madison Avenue' David Ogilvy said: "in truth, only the direct response people know what the hell they are doing".

Google it.
