Instagram Videos Featuring Product Placement

What is the site's stance on product advertisement?  I've noticed Bang Energy trending in a ton of videos, and it really gets old after a while.  Also any other supplements that happen to make it into these vids.  As time goes on, before you know it you'll have hundreds of these "ad videos" on the site getting free advertising for their products.

It's ok if it would be OK to post on its own merit, generally. Can you give examples?

The culprits tend to be certain women, they don't all do this.  Redline and Bang energy are running pretty aggressive (arguably invasive) ad campaigns so the women they sponsor tend to throw up a lot of vids advertising for them.  These are 2 examples off the top of my head:

There are others, such as Yarishna Ayala that I've avoided posting because the advertising (in my opinion) is just too blatant.

Yeah, both of those women have plenty of pics on the site such that we don't need these crappy ones.
