A photo of a Singapore Police Force (SPF) crime alert board placed near Chinatown MRT station, referencing a famous line from the Hollywood movie “Fight Club” is going viral on social media.

Directed by David Fincher, “Fight Club” was released in 1999 starring Brad Pitt and Edward Norton and is now regarded by many as one of the iconic films of the 90’s and of all time.

The film has achieved cult-status over the years and a line from the movie that goes “Welcome to Fight Club. The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club…” has become one of the most famous lines in contemporary film history.

SPF appears to have made a spin on this famous line, using the dialogue to warn members of the public against fighting, through a crime alert board that is placed just outside Chinatown MRT station.

The SPF has been known to use humour, on occasion, as part of their efforts to deter crime. Last February, two humorous posters published on the SPF’s social media page, targeted at pickpockets and shoplifters, went viral online:
