Why?

18
00:00:32,080 –> 00:00:33,360
Take it from someone who’s been through this before

19
00:00:33,360 –> 00:00:34,360
Remember to bring your power bank ah

20
00:00:35,160 –> 00:00:36,240
What do I need this for…

21
00:00:36,240 –> 00:00:38,680
Eh! Why didn’t you tell me you were going for BMT tonight?

22
00:00:38,680 –> 00:00:40,280

27
00:00:46,480 –> 00:00:47,360

00:00:47,360 –> 00:00:48,520

00:00:48,520 –> 00:00:50,760
This, is the BMT I’m going for

30
00:00:51,160 –> 00:00:52,560
What you all thinking sia?

31
00:00:54,760 –> 00:00:57,680
Waaaaa bo jio leh!

32
00:01:00,560 –> 00:01:03,520
Most of us are familiar with the BMT from Subway

33
00:01:03,520 –> 00:01:06,280
But how much do you really know about this favourite sub?

34
00:01:06,280 –> 00:01:08,760
And about Subway in Singapore in general?

35
00:01:08,760 –> 00:01:11,440
I bet you didn’t know that the BMT didn’t originally stand for

36
00:01:11,440 –> 00:01:13,480
Bigger, Meatier and Tastier?

37
00:01:13,480 –> 00:01:15,360
Basic Military Training!

38
00:01:16,280 –> 00:01:18,480
Well here are five facts about Subway in Singapore

39
00:01:18,480 –> 00:01:20,120
that you probably didn’t know about

40
00:01:21,040 –> 00:01:23,000
This is many people’s favourite sandwhich

41
00:01:23,000 –> 00:01:24,360
Known as the Italian BMT,

42
00:01:24,360 –> 00:01:27,360
people know the BMT as Bigger, Meatier and Tastier

43
00:01:27,360 –> 00:01:29,280
It’s even on the Subway website!

44
00:01:29,280 –> 00:01:31,560
But did you know it originally wasn’t named that way?

45
00:01:31,560 –> 00:01:34,440
BMT initially meant Brooklyn Manhattan Transit

46
00:01:34,440 –> 00:01:36,400
Sort of like an MRT line in Singapore

47
00:01:36,400 –> 00:01:38,560
But of course, this is in New York

48
00:01:38,560 –> 00:01:40,360
In New York, there are three BMT Lines

49
00:01:40,360 –> 00:01:43,080
The BMT Canarsie Line, the BMT Nassau Street Line

50
00:01:43,080 –> 00:01:44,760
and the BMT Broadway Line

51
00:01:44,760 –> 00:01:47,000
In Singapore, there’s only one BMT line:

52
00:01:47,000 –> 00:01:48,440
The BMT Company Line

53
00:01:49,840 –> 00:01:52,360
The BMT has under 500 calories,

54
00:01:52,360 –> 00:01:55,240
but do you know that there many other sandwiches in Subway

55
00:01:55,240 –> 00:01:57,040
with less than 500 calories?

56
00:01:57,040 –> 00:02:00,000
So for example, this is a Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich

57
00:02:00,000 –> 00:02:02,320
with just 319 calories

58
00:02:02,320 –> 00:02:06,560
This is the Roasted Chicken Breast with only 300 calories!

59
00:02:06,560 –> 00:02:11,880
And this, is the Turkey Breast Sandwich with only 267 calories

60
00:02:11,880 –> 00:02:16,280
On average, a man needs about 2500 calories a day to survive,

61
00:02:16,280 –> 00:02:19,200
while a woman like me, needs 2000 calories a day!

62
00:02:22,560 –> 00:02:25,680
So, he, can have 9 of these Turkey sandwiches in a day

63
00:02:25,680 –> 00:02:27,440
and me, I can have 7!

64
00:02:27,560 –> 00:02:31,000
But of course, if you want to eat fresh and healthier, keep watching!

65
00:02:32,320 –> 00:02:35,240
There are actually milions of combinations you can choose from

66
00:02:35,240 –> 00:02:36,320
Yeah,

67
00:02:36,360 –> 00:02:37,440
millions

68
00:02:37,440 –> 00:02:39,320
So, here’s what we mean

69
00:02:39,320 –> 00:02:41,080
May I have a 6 inch multigrain,

70
00:02:41,080 –> 00:02:41,840
roasted chicken breast,

71
00:02:41,840 –> 00:02:44,440
american cheese, tuna, double meat

72
00:02:44,480 –> 00:02:46,400
Give me a scoop of avocado as well

73
00:02:46,400 –> 00:02:49,240
Hi can I have one foot long Italian BMT?

74
00:02:49,240 –> 00:02:51,920
Sandwich Artist: I will choose Parmesan Oregano bread for you?

75
00:02:51,920 –> 00:02:52,840
Err yeah that’s great!

76
00:02:52,840 –> 00:02:55,680
Can I add chicken bacon, more chicken ham

77
00:02:55,680 –> 00:02:57,560
More cheese, veggie pattie

78
00:02:57,560 –> 00:02:59,680
You see, everyone has their own preferences,

79
00:02:59,680 –> 00:03:01,480
so it’s always different for everyone

80
00:03:01,480 –> 00:03:04,680
And this man has made millions of different combinations

81
00:03:04,680 –> 00:03:06,680
which is why people call him an artist!

82
00:03:07,920 –> 00:03:10,280
Hi sir, has anyone ever called you an artist?

83
00:03:10,280 –> 00:03:11,360
Mmm… no?

84
00:03:11,400 –> 00:03:12,400
Never?

85
00:03:12,400 –> 00:03:14,120
Well, I’ll call you that

86
00:03:14,120 –> 00:03:16,720
You see, the counter staff here isn’t just called “Oi!”

87
00:03:16,720 –> 00:03:19,200
Their official title is ‘Sandwich Artist’

88
00:03:19,200 –> 00:03:22,760
That’s because every sandwich being made is a work of art

89
00:03:22,800 –> 00:03:25,320
A lot of work is being put into a sandwich

90
00:03:25,320 –> 00:03:28,280
And of course, a lot of customization too

91
00:03:28,320 –> 00:03:30,040
So the next time you see him?

92
00:03:30,240 –> 00:03:31,360
Call him an artist!

93
00:03:32,240 –> 00:03:34,840
So if you’re fortunate enough to binge watch YouTube,

94
00:03:34,880 –> 00:03:38,080
you’ll have come across people customizing Subway sandwiches

95
00:03:38,080 –> 00:03:39,280
to something like this

96
00:03:40,160 –> 00:03:41,160
or this

97
00:03:42,200 –> 00:03:45,520
Like I’ve mentioned, you can customize any sandwhich

98
00:03:45,640 –> 00:03:47,520
the way you want it to be!

99
00:03:47,520 –> 00:03:49,440
Feeling extremely hungry?

100
00:03:49,440 –> 00:03:50,000
Try this!

101
00:03:50,360 –> 00:03:51,960
Everything! Everything!

102
00:03:52,000 –> 00:03:52,680
Everything!

103
00:03:52,680 –> 00:03:53,840
I can eat a horse!

104
00:03:53,840 –> 00:03:55,280
Everything! Just pile it on me!

105
00:03:55,400 –> 00:03:57,040
Feeling full? Try this

106
00:03:57,320 –> 00:03:58,720
Oh yes, this please!

107
00:03:58,760 –> 00:04:00,360
No, just two slices!

108
00:04:00,360 –> 00:04:01,560
Yes, that slice

109
00:04:01,560 –> 00:04:02,240
Thanks sir

110
00:04:02,240 –> 00:04:04,640
I’m going on a date, I’ve got a meeting with Nayeon next week

111
00:04:05,320 –> 00:04:07,800
And if you think it’s just sandwiches, you’re wrong!

112
00:04:07,880 –> 00:04:09,520
They have more than just sandwiches!

113
00:04:09,520 –> 00:04:10,680
They have wraps,

114
00:04:10,680 –> 00:04:12,240
they have salads,

115
00:04:12,240 –> 00:04:15,800
and if you’re an early bird, they even have a breakfast menu!

116
00:04:16,200 –> 00:04:18,720
And you won’t even need to have this in a restaurant as well!

117
00:04:19,080 –> 00:04:22,440
Subway does delivery as well, so if you want to eat fresh,

118
00:04:22,440 –> 00:04:24,680
you can do it without moving an inch

119
00:04:24,680 –> 00:04:27,720
And the thing is, they do it all through food delivery vendors

120
00:04:27,720 –> 00:04:29,400
In addition to that, if you have a meeting

121
00:04:29,400 –> 00:04:32,880
and you want to impress your clients, they also do catering

122
00:04:32,960 –> 00:04:35,960
But if you have a craving at 12 in the morning for Subway

123
00:04:35,960 –> 00:04:36,960
Just go to sleep

124
00:04:41,960 –> 00:04:43,920
So now that you know more about Subway,

125
00:04:43,920 –> 00:04:45,560
do you feel like getting one?

126
00:04:45,560 –> 00:04:46,960
What are you waiting for?

127
00:04:46,960 –> 00:04:47,960
Go now!

128
00:04:47,960 –> 00:04:49,440
Go live fresh!
