The customized drones dropped off boxes of Coke cans and more than 2,700 photos of Singaporeans with handwritten signs thanking the workers for building their city. The drones flew high through construction sites to reach unsuspecting workers.

Eugene Cheong, chief creative officer of Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific, added, “This project is exciting because it touches on a universal social tension in modern society – the disconnect between guest workers and the local residents of the places that have become their home away from home. Construction workers, in particular, tend to be ‘invisible’ as they are working in areas that are not accessible to the average person. So in order to appreciate them, we first need to see them. This is what this video allows us to do.”
