You know how they say persistence is the key to success? This guy is the living embodiment of that.
One man in Singapore made it his mission to get KFC to bring back its Hot Devil Drumlets — basically spicy chicken drumsticks — that was discontinued in the country in 2014.
He turned to Twitter as his weapon of choice.
He pretty much used every opportunity he had to bring up ’em spicy drumlets.
im hangry coz you guys wont bring back the Hot Devil Drumlets.

He managed to bang on that Hot Devil drum, even when KFC was launching a different product.
Finally, he got this message:
“My first reaction [to this was] nah, this has to be fake…because my close friends know I love fried chicken,” Farhan told Mashable.
“So I clicked KFC’s profile and [saw that it was real] I was just stunned. I mean they actually noticed the tweets and made an effort to contact me,” he said.
According to Farhan, KFC will be sending him a box of the drumlets next Wednesday, before it is due to “relaunch islandwide.”
A spokesperson from KFC confirmed that the company did in fact, recognise Farhan’s tweets.
“As an appreciation for his fervent support, we wanted to let him have the first taste of the Hot Devil Drumlets comeback,” a KFC spokesman told Mashable.
KFC added that the launch date of the product could not revealed at the moment.
It is also unclear if the item will be relaunched permanently or as a limited product.
For now — we’ll just have to wait.
