Tom & Ben's Singapore Sling with Singapore Tourism Board

RED Engine TV developed a unique and engaging brand-funded program concept for Singapore Tourism Board, customised to profile the range of opportunities available in Singapore for travellers, from a truly Australian perspective. ‘Tom and Ben’s Singapore Sling’ was hosted by well-known presenter and experienced traveller, Tom Williams, and his mate, TV chef Ben O’Donoghue. Tom and Ben’s natural friendship, knock-about manner, and high profiles made the pair an ideal choice. The banter between friends throughout brought the experience to life, as viewers could imagine themselves on holiday with a mate experiencing all that Singapore had to offer. Tom and Ben explored Singapore on a pit stop on their way back from a surf trip in the Maldives. They spent 36 hours on the island with no itinerary and no plans. The 60-minute episode went to air on the Seven Network in prime time during the Easter break.
