Big names in SG trendjack FB post claiming MBS to be in Tennessee

Big names in Singapore have trendjacked a recent Facebook post featuring an image of Marina Bay Sands and captioned "Downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee". Inspired by the post which is currently gaining traction online, the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth decided to join in on the fun by posting a close up picture of kueh lapis with the caption: "Grand Canyon, Arizona. What a beaut." The post had 45 reactions and nine shares at the time of writing.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force also jumped in, posting a picture of its fire truck with the caption: "Ladder 17 responding to a 911 call at Downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA."

As a bonus, SCDF commented on its own post with a picture of its personnel introducing the pumper firefighting machine, addressing her as Britney Spears. The post had 1.9k reactions, 65 comments and 530 shares at the time of writing.
