  6. Dennis Tan Says:

    Haha. I think you localise it better than it was on tv.

    mcys version - 30% humour and 70% message
    mr brown’s version - 80% humour 20% message

    wa lau eh!

  7. Cloudywind Says:

  8. toothfiery Says:

    Hilarious. Terminal 1 + 2 + 3 + budget terminal!

  10. kaineng Says:

    honestly saying, the real one should be better in message, but then an ‘improvised’ version would be nice…

    sad that what ideas gahmen employs is gonna get messed up by mrbrown…

  11. LobsterOfRevenge Says:

    the message was only 20% or even less than that, but i got the message better from here than from telly..

  12. Onlooker Says:

    Miss fire. LOL

  13. worldcrass Says:

    during these sobering times, the government engaged a foreign director for a national tv advertisement.

    cannot find someone from singapore to do is it?

    the idea is not new, go watch taiwanese arthouse ‘yi yi’ to figure that out!

  14. Jayden Says:

    This is good… LOL

    Quick question, what’s the music piece behind the tvc?

  15. Joseph Says:

  27. angry_one Says:

    better than the original!

  28. R Says:

    Didn’t really like it this time…Probably because the original really had some substance this time, and this version wasn’t really funny :P

    Good effort though!

  29. sing praises Says:

    even better than the real ad :)

  30. sg man Says:

    wa lau eh.

    That’s what the original lack.

    wa lau eh.

    That’s what atas people don’t understand.

    wa lau eh.

    Culture die already.

    wa lau eh.

    Thanks for the great sound bite.

    wa lau eh.

  31. harry Says:

    the show obviously got inspired from “Good Will Hunting”, the setting is different, but the content is similar. Imho, the ad is touching but not impressive, after all it was using a tried and tested formula.

    however, mr. brown’s sound bite is quite different. although inspired from the MCYS funeral ad, the content is not the same, and it is refreshingly original, especially the message it is trying to get across.

    there is nothing special about imperfect + imperfect = perfect (MCYS funeral); but it is the imperfect + imperfect = imperfect with the parties involved both trying in their lifetime to live together through thick and thin throughout this imperfect match, that makes them admirable.

    mr. brown, you have done it again, well done!

  32. Ming Says:

    Yah… Once again our govt in their bid to be “creative” fail to be sensitive to the ordinary culture. Choy… Say family die. They then all die.

  33. gordon Says:

    wah lau eh. this podcast hor, sibei touching loh and funny at the same time.

  34. Foster Says:

    garmen indirect brainwash again

    family=> commitment => more $$$ for garmen

    so to summarize:
    get married, get sucked more into the deeper hole….

  35. wayang Says:

    wa liao eh.. mr brown.. u got tears rollin down my cheeks.. wa liao eh

  36. Thiam Says:

    terminal 1, terminal 2, terminal 3 combine. OMG THAT WAS DAMN FUNNY. GOOD JOB. and i love the mystery of mister merlion! hahaha your father is water cooler. omg you guys rock!

  38. Singkahporean Says:

    Just imagine this voiceover and Mark Lee standing at the podium (or wherever) and you get Singakporean humour.

    Crass, unoriginal and ultimately not very funny.

    I only chuckled because I realize how funny someone who speaks true Singlish sounds.

  39. Sam Says:

    its hilarious. i started laughing the moment Mr Lim said his first words…

  40. isftish Says:

    hehehehe….i think mrbrown tried to stick close to the original video. I could think of a 1/2 dozen “i misfire” type jokes to put in.

    The funny part of sg humour is how seriously we feel or do things that are soooooooooo lame/politically incorrect/stupid/cheapskate/self opinionated. that why we like mr bean so much.

  41. choy sock ching Says:

    mr brown, why all these people congratutating you ah? you are not that funny all the time, especially this one. But whatever “fart” you do,also people say good now. So, I guess u will carry on. Try harder lah…this one…abit contrived leh….the so many wah lao ehs are a give away that you are trying too hard and running out of ideas. What so funny about Changi airport, so flat (pun not intended) i am sure it is not for lack of material….how about try the AWARE saga especially that Dr Thio….good material.

  42. Vicsky Says:

    imho, the “wa lao eh”s were what made this spoof so successful. seems like some ppl skipped out on literature class :p

  43. Jim Leow Says:


    Yeah it sucks when a loved one dies……

    Ya know, this is prob one of the best and most worthy campaigns our gahmen ever ran. In fact, I dare say this is one of the most worthy of ALL campaigns EVER run since the beginning of time! Its never bad to promote healthy loving families (and leave it up to the individuals to define their own healthy n loving)…

    classic sia niceee

    Since going live on April 7, 2009, the revolutionary “Beautifully Imperfect” Facebook contest has garnered more than 350 entries and gained close to 14,000 people who became fans, with a potentially larger base, given that users who signed up are either ‘in a relationship’, married’ or ‘engaged’. Bloggers worldwide, from as far as North America and Botswana, have added to the wild fire popularity by actively responding and commenting on the “Beautifully Imperfect” competition. The contest has even gained attention from local celebrities such as DJs Hamish Brown and Stanley Leong.

    In the contest, Facebookers are invited to upload images and write about their “Beautifully Imperfect” relationship. Winners are chosen by popular vote each week and at the end of the competition, the top ten most popular couples enjoy a free weekend getaway at the Roof Garden Suite of the Siloso Beach Resort, Sentosa.

    Please join the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS) as we congratulate the top 10 “Beautifully Imperfect” winners who will share their experiences and thoughts on what makes their relationship “Beautifully Imperfect.” Also present will be critically acclaimed director, Yasmin Ahmad, who helmed the award-winning ‘Family’ TVC last year and the current ‘Funeral’ TVC, which aired in April this year.
