I gotta be honest here folks. When the brief from my editor first pinged in my inbox and it went “Eh loser, you no life right? Do a review of Singapore Social for me leh”, I thought:
Sial lah, that’s damn rude, why did you come for me like this, and
Um, I read the initial reviews and I have better things to do like watching my toe nails grow.
But in the name of good journalism, I decided to park aside 45 minutes to watch the first episode on a Saturday afternoon. You know, to see how these group of influencers “break the status quo” or “live their best life”.
As it turns out, turning it into a drinking game amongst my friends made it incredibly fun (and I hope it does for you too) but word of advice, have a dustbin on standby. You might throw up like how some of the cast verbally vomited too. Welcome to Singapore. Let’s get social.
Shot 1: The video started off with EDM and sweeping scenery of Singapore. We’re not pointing fingers but this show was most likely produced by a white person. (WATCH TILL THE CREDIT ROLL BECAUSE WE WERE RIGHT!!!)
Shot 2: Paul Foster has mentioned “live our lives to the fullest” two minutes into the video. Take a shot and cringe from the quote, not the tequila.
Shot 3: After Vinny said “When someone comes to find happiness”, Paul replied “they come to find Paul Foster”.
Shot 4: Nicole asked Mae earnestly if she knows that “Vinny + Mae” = Minnie. Mae laughed awkwardly. I cringed again. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if my body shriveled up from all the cringing by the end of the episode.
Shot 5: Nicole was amazed that Vinny is challenging the educational structure of Singapore. Woah, sis isn’t as two-dimensional as we thought.
Shot 6: Mae confidently stated that Tabitha is Singapore’s Beyoncé. We’re pretty sure Singapore Beyhives are clutching their pearls.
Shot 7: The entire cast was shocked that Paul stayed with Vinny for the entire night because the latter couldn’t get into his apartment. Newsflash: that’s what decent humans do.
