Launched company-wide in 2015, our Halloween Instagram Costume Battle encouraged employees across the country to get creative as they vied for prizes, whimsical trophies, and bragging rights. To announce the 2016 contest, our marketing team produced this scary-good video. An homage to Stranger Things, the video creates an increasingly creepy mood while communicating key contest details.

Results: Engagement level for the 2016 video reached 1,195 views, about 4X higher than the viewership for 2015. The 2016 battle was a huge success, filling our Instagram page with hundreds of imaginative costumes and showcasing our employees’ incredible team spirit.
