An anti-gambling advertisement in Singapore appears to have correctly predicted the outcome of the Wednesday, July 9, game between Germany and Brazil which ended with the score of 7-1 as well as the finals on Sunday between Germany and Argentina with the score of 1-0. The advertising campaign covers both video and posters.
新加坡出了一个反赌球广告,然而这则广告却十分精准地预测了两场比赛:7月9日周三德国对巴西比分7:1,周日德国对阿根廷的总决赛比分1:0。这则广告不仅包括视频广告,还有平面海报。

The video ran for 34 seconds and featured a bunch of Singaporean boys talking about the World Cup tournament, with one saying, "I hope Germany wins. My dad bet all my savings on them." The poster version showed only two boys with the same kid expressing his anti-gambling sentiment via a thought balloon. The video was posted a month ago and had since got almost 800,000 hits.
该视频总长34秒,镜头中一群新加坡男孩正在讨论世界杯比赛。一个孩子说,“我希望德国赢。我爸拿了我全部积蓄,赌他们赢。”海报版广告只呈现了两个男孩坐着说话的情景,与视频中一致的那个男孩头部上方的气泡语言表达了反赌球的情绪。这一视频是在一个月前发布出来的,目前已有80万点击量。

The National Council on Problem Gambling commented that the advert was timed with the excitement and hype generated by the World Cup tournament in Brazil as spectators speculate who would win in matches by betting on their favourite teams.
新加坡全国赌博问题协会评论称,巴西世界杯的球迷狂热地预测比赛中的获胜队伍、纷纷把赌注压在自己最喜欢的球队上,基于这一现象他们策划了这一广告。

The spokesman of the council explained, "Selecting Germany injected a sense of realism in our messaging, since no one will bet on a potentially losing team ... At the end of the day, win or lose, the dangers of problem gambling and the potential anxiety and pain that loved ones go through, remain unchanged."
新加坡全国赌博问题协会发言人解释道,“选择德国是基于我们的常识,因为没有人会把赌注压在一个总是输球的队伍上……在决赛的最后一天,无论谁赢谁输,赌博问题的危险以及家人所经历的潜在焦虑和痛苦是没有办法改变的。”

However, because of the "prophetic" nature of the ad, Singaporean Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin commented via a Facebook feed, "Looks like the boy's father who bet all his savings on Germany will be laughing all the way to the bank!"
然而,由于这一广告的戏剧性“精准预测”,新加坡人力部长陈川仁在Facebook上评论道,“貌似这个把全部积蓄赌在德国队上的小男孩的爸爸要大笑着去银行领钱了!”

Minister for Trade and Industry Teo Ser Luck added, "Germany beat Brazil 7-1! Brazil need to find out what went wrong and I need to find the script-writer for the gambling control advertisement."
贸易和工业部长张思乐补充说,“德国以7:1打败巴西!巴西队要弄清楚到底哪里出了问题,同时我需要找到这个反赌球广告的编剧。”

Among the witty comments on the YouTube video was from DavidUngerMusic who wrote, "After today's game, I think that I should start gambling."
YouTube视频网站上出了很多幽默诙谐的评论,用户DavidUngerMusic写道:“今天的比赛之后,我想我应该开始赌博了。哈哈。”

Mist8k commented, "I wish I could laugh at this but knowing a few gambling addicts myself I know his dad would just blow all his money he won (even if it was millions) and then probably end up getting shot by a drug dealer."
用户Mist8k评论道,“看了这个视频我真的笑不出来。以前我曾经赌博上瘾,所以我知道即使他爸爸赢了他也会输光所有赢来的钱(即使他赢了上百万),然后最后被毒贩子盯上。”
