Watch: Tiny drone peeps into private homes in Singapore

But don't worry, it's not an invasion of privacy. It's a two-minute, single-take TVC that leads off a new campaign by BBH for Singapore insurer NTUC Income.

It may not be quite as dramatic as this single-take drone video of a US bowling alley that went viral recently, but a new film from Singapore insurer NTUC Income, by BBH, is an impressive achievement in its own right. Also shot in one take, the two-minute film allows us to zoom around a housing complex, navigating our way through open windows to get glimpses of the private lives of Singaporeans.

(Just for the record, Ad Nut has confirmed that the Income campaign was in the works long before the bowling alley clip made the rounds, so this is not a case of copycatting.)

The film isn't just about the abilities of the drone pilot; the team managed to get human warmth into the footage as well. Ad Nut was particularly tickled by the streaming incident that takes place at the 54-second mark and appreciated the inclusion of what appears to be an interracial same-sex couple rolling a pineapple into their new home at 1:10. 

The film leads off a new integrated campaign for Income, with which the brand is evolving its message from ‘Made different’ to a company that is ‘Made yours’. This heralds, we're told, a more personal approach to financial planning, with products, services and customer experiences suited to every individual. The slices of life in the film accentuate how everyone's needs are different. You get it.

The campaign includes free-to-air TV, Singtel TV, cinema, social, digital, OOH and in-branch materials.
