A video campaign by an international soft drink giant and a local social civic group to thank foreign workers in Singapore has gone viral online.

Last week, the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) and Coca-Cola Singapore posted a YouTube video of flying drones delivering cans of Coca-Cola to construction workers at a high-rise worksite.

The soft drink cans also carried handwritten notes from Singaporeans thanking the construction workers for their labour.

In about a week, the video has captured more than 258,000 views, with about 2,600 YouTube viewers "liking" it.
