If the company culture is one that would enjoy a video then I would include one but cut it down – under 5 minutes with 2.5 being a sweet spot. I work in marketing and periodically see companies suggest an “outside of the box” cover letter in the form of a video would be nice. I personally think that if they have to ask for it then their culture promise is fake. A candidate should know whether or not a video would be appreciated by how the culture is publically presented. Agree with the other posters though on content. Cover letters should be short and sweet – less is more, it’s a basic introduction to you and why you would be a good fit.
