SINGAPORE: In a street interview, several Singaporeans were asked what colour the S$10,000 bill is. Funnily enough, the respondents had the same final answer. Did they get it right or wrong?
“What is the colour of the S$10,000?” an interviewer from the TikTok account @uncoversixtyfive asked respondents on the street.
The page’s profile says, “There is so much to know about Singapore!” And in a recent video, they proved just that to Singaporean interviewees.
The question stumped the respondents. “Wah, I’ve never seen it before,” said the first. “If it’s not purple, not green and not red, is it… a brown colour?” the man asked, likening it to “Chocolate milk, chocolate.”
The second respondent was a group of young Singaporean friends.
The interviewer gave them a hint, saying, “You just eliminate slowly. S$2 is what colour?”
“Purple…” the youngsters answered before adding, “Whitish-purple.”
“S$5, what colour?” asked the host.
“Green,” the boys answered.
“Okay, s$10, what colour?” the host continued.
“S$50 what colour?”
“Green?” one said, “Blue-ish…dark blue…correct blue.”
“S$100, what colour?
“Hundred dollars …orange… orange slash yellow.”
The interviewer moved to a higher bill, asking, “S$1,000, what colour?”
To this, one of the boys said, “I’ve never seen it, bro, I’m not rich.
“Purple?” asked one.
“Yeah, correct, purple…” said the host. “So S$10,000, what colour?
“Pink,” said one of the boys.
“It’s not pink,” the host responded. “Last chance.”
“Bro, just come up with something,” said one of the friends. “You come up with a colour.”
Still, someone answered, “Pink.”
“He just said it’s not pink!” said one of the friends.
Funnily, the group’s final answer was “Brown,” the same as the first respondent.
At the end of the video, the host revealed the correct answer, saying, “It’s golden colour, bro.”
The video has garnered over 309,000 views and more than 17,000 likes in three days.
