Comments Off on Singapore landmarks that star in Hitman: Agent 47
Have you gotten over the buzz of seeing Singapore’s landmarks in the Hitman: Agent 47 movie trailer yet? I know I haven’t. If you plan or intend to travel to Singapore, here are few spots that were taken from Hitman Agent 47
While re-watching the trailer, we spotted six Singapore brands that had their two seconds of fame. Did you spot them too?
1. Comfort Delgro
Based on screen time alone, Comfort Delgro is the top Singapore brand we spotted. When we stalked the Robinson Road set last May, the cab drivers there (yes, real ones) told us that they had been asked by the company to drive their cabs to the set for the four-day shoot.
And Comfort certainly scored big when they got the money shot below that featured their logo and cab booking hotline number oh-so prominently.
My only gripe is that this traffic set up is so inaccurate. Since when were cabs so bountiful in the central business district (CBD)? Also, we do have non-blue cabs, not to mention other vehicles
On second thought, I do want to stay in this cab-abundant version of Singapore. Clearly, it could only exist in a movie.
Fun fact : Bus 167 does drive through the CBD area, but it doesn’t travel down Robinson Road. It’s actual service route goes past Cecil Road, which is the road parallel to Robinson.
3. MPH bookstores
We spotted the MPH logo at least five times in the trailer. I don’t know about you, but I feel a strong urge to visit MPH and buy some books each time I watch the trailer. This is subliminal advertising at its best!
But if Agent 47 ends up encouraging Singaporeans to read more, we should all be grateful for that. This might just be the savior all bookstores were hoping for.
4. OUE limited
There were so many buildings with neon logos in this frame, and yet only one logo was visible: OUE. I think OUE should pay their neon logo designer a bonus.
How can this be the end if your school’s logo is photo bombing Hanna Friend?
6. Uncle Sam’s Claypot
Uncle Sam’s Claypot’s outlet at Robinson Road is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and Fox just gave it the best-est present: A plug in a Hollywood movie trailer.
