Bad Decisions is a song born from the collaboration between popular K-Pop superstar group BTS, American record producer Benny Blanco and Snoop Dog, surprisingly. The song is a girly dance song that was released earlier this week, along with a music video.

Specifically, it’s a customized Xbox controller with the same color scheme as the Bad Decisions single: magenta with white joysticks and D-pad, while the buttons are standard black. The single logo is decorated in the controller’s middle, while the artists’ names are also shown at the bottom. It also has a built-in speaker on the back, and when the player presses a certain button, the song starts playing from the back speaker. However, such a controller cannot be obtained normally and only through this particular Xbox gift giveaway.
With such a unique controller, it is a sought-after item for BTS fans. Fans interested in owning this collector’s item should follow the Xbox Twitter account and QRT the original tweet with #BadDecisionsSongXboxSweepstakes. This giveaway starts on August 4th at 9:00pm and runs until August 25th when entries close at 6:00pm. Fans must be 18 years of age or older to win.
The tweet also notes that players will also receive a unique vehicle in their Forza Horizon 5 garage, which is also believed to be based on this song and will sport the same color scheme. Fans, who are both K-Pop and Xbox fans, flocked to the tweet, with many expressing their excitement at the chance to win a piece of unique Xbox hardware tied to their favorite music group.
