|Title of Entry:||Beat Machine|

|Notes:||Bacardí turned a Youtube video into a sound editing software, by launching the Beat Machine.
The brand used a feature that even some Youtube engineers did not know existed, that allows people to fast forward a video using their numeric keyboards. While watching a video on the platform when you click 1 on your keyboard, your video fast forwards to 10% of the footage, and 2 makes it go to 20%, 3 to 30%...
The Beat Machine video was edited to utilize that characteristic so that at every 10% of the video, a new beat from the Major Lazer and Anitta’s brand launched track would kick in, allowing people to have fun remixing it by simply using their numeric keyboard.
