Movie trailers on Instagram; awesome idea or unwelcome bloat in our feeds?

This is a movie trailer for the upcoming Jobs movie starring Ashton Kutcher, only it's been delivered by Instagram. Ignoring the fact that the movie has been hyped to death and back again, we're only a few weeks in with (http://www.imore.com/instagram-announces-new-video-service) and already we're seeing the first movie trailer.

Not only aren't there any tilt-shifts, frames, borders, or vignettes, but there's nothing overly aggressive about Apple's selection in any way. How does that compare to current king of photo sharing, Instagram, and to the other big social photo sharing services, Google+ and Twitter?
