Singtel Launches Third Chinese New Year Comedy Short Film

Singtel has launched the latest installment of its annual short film for Chinese New Year. This year, “The Hunt for the Lucky Tiger” features two rival families that go on a staycation at the same hotel.

The two families continue their rivalry from the first two installments in Singtel’s festive film series: – “His Grandfather’s Road” (2020) and “My Grandmother’s House” (2021) – endearing themselves to Singaporeans after their madcap but meaningful altercations in these previous films.

Set against the backdrop of the pandemic, this year’s film sees the Ang and Huang families opt to go on staycation during the Chinese New Year break instead of travelling overseas.

Kismet leads them to choose the same hotel on the beautiful and now 5G-powered island of Sentosa, sparking fresh contention and comedic rivalry between the families when they run into each other upon arrival.

More details below from the press release.
