Be Anything But Regular – New Campaign from the Singapore Army

“This campaign is rewriting the rules of military advertising.”


Our Singapore Army


Tribal Worldwide Singapore

Our Singapore Army (Our Army) has partnered with Tribal Worldwide Singapore for a campaign that looks to playfully turn the tables on army stereotypes as part of a new recruitment drive.

The ‘Anything but regular’ campaign challenges common misperceptions of army careers. Beyond typical impressions of a physically demanding, regimented, and male-dominated work environment, the agency highlights exhilarating opportunities for adventure, personal development, and career advancement within Our Army for both men and women. Our Army also provides the job security, stability, and benefits students expect from more conventional careers.

The film stars a female officer listening on as her friends boast about their experiences at work. Their words inspire her to quietly reflect on her own experiences as an army regular – ones that stand in striking contrast to those found behind a desk.


The film is the first in a series that injects new meaning into corporate jargon like career, travel, and success. Featuring real-life personnel from diverse career schemes in Our Army, the video illustrates how their experiences are anything but regular.

Said COL Wong Pui Chuan, Chief Human Resource Officer at Our Singapore Army, “People have certain impressions about army careers based on what they see or hear about National Service.

Our Army careers are so much more. Through the lens of our regulars, we hope to showcase the extraordinary, dynamic, and diverse experiences that army careers offer. It is a great playing field for Singaporeans from all walks of life. We are happy to partner with Tribal Worldwide on this campaign and bring this world of possibilities to all prospective regulars.”


Benson Toh, Executive Creative Director at Tribal Worldwide, said, “This campaign is rewriting the rules of military advertising. We’re going against the grain to challenge common misconceptions about Our Army, starting with a female lead. Far from marching men in camouflage and strict rules, our campaign tells a tale of adventure, adrenaline, and opportunities.

We’re incredibly honoured to partner with Our Singapore Army and exceptionally proud of what this campaign will achieve online and across social media.”
