India’s first-ever cocktail anthem for Bacardi NH7 Weekender is created by Gobble, the lifestyle channel by Pocket Aces in collaboration with OML Entertainment featuring talented acapella artists and thus bringing the thrill of popular music festivals home. Keeping its audiences engaged and entertained, Gobble has established itself as the go-to platform for creative expression with table-top recipes, non-fiction short videos and web-series. Two easy yet delicious cocktail recipes that can be mastered at home using Bacardi Rum is showcased in the lifestyle channel where it teamed up with independent musician Ambika Nayak and extremely skilful Acapella group Instrumen to demonstrate the recipes.
Ambika Nayak took the viewers through quick cocktail preparations such as an Aam Panna Mojito, and a Piña Colada in the video which was released ahead of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender on Gobble’s YouTube, Facebook and Instagram pages. The perfect sound was created by the acapella artists from the Instrumen group using their beatboxing skills and vocals to imitate instruments and unusual sounds while also lending their melodious voices to the lyrics and Ambika Nayak was accompanied with all of this. Bringing out the perfect young and upbeat vibe of the Bacardi NH7 Weekender, the sound of the track complemented the visuals of the video. A testament to the audience’s receptiveness of the innovation in format. The foot-tapping video has caught the nerve of the netizens since its release.
