The Melting Machine is a new guerrilla marketing technique that has been set up in Buenos Aeries by the soft drink brand. It’s a ‘vending’ machine made entirely from ice and offers up a unique way to get a cold drink on a hot day.

As the ice that makes up the machine melts, passers-by are invited to grab a 7Up, as well as invited to guess what time they think the last can will be freed from it’s icy encasing. This guess is made via Twitter and gives the company a great way to attract attention using social media.
