Originally launched in late 2019, Instagram’s new feature called Reels exploded on the map in Thailand in 2021. The option allows creators from all over the world to share snappy, entertaining videos that are no longer than 30 seconds in a similar vein to videos on TikTok. Whether it’s lip-syncing chart hits or movie dialogue, trying their hand at viral dance routines, cooking up a storm, or making relatable satirical videos, here are 10 content creators whose reels, reel-y won us over!
