As I was walking back to work this afternoon, I saw the above bus stop poster by NTUC Income. What's interesting about the advertisement was that it sought to imbue a social element to an otherwise commercial marketing platform. I suppose its also topical since the opening of the two Integrated Resorts in Singapore last year, and I like how it fused clever copywriting with the main visual.
This isn't the first time that NTUC Income has rode on the wave of public interest, if you can recall their opportunistic flooding advertisement last June.
What do you think of the above strategy? Would such social messages work for a financial services company?
