Assistant chief executive from the marketing group at STB, Lynette Pang, said: “This time we wanted to start inside out. We wanted to hear what Singaporeans believed in and wanted a brand that reflected what Singapore is today. It needed to stand for a belief and attitude.”

So is the new branding really what Singaporeans believe in? Some netizens gave their stamp of approval by complimenting the stunning cinematography and content of the campaign’s videos.

However, most netizens have been shooting the new tagline down, claiming that it does not represent Singapore at all.

Netizens brought up how contradictory the slogan was when it comes to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Singapore.

Interestingly, it was also pointed out that the slogan sounds sexually suggestive.
