KFC ad on MSN Live Messenger


I finally managed to get the MSN Live Messenger Blogger gets Twister-fied KFC ad that has the inbound link to It took a lot of clicking on the close button and double clicking it from the task bar again to reload the MSN ad though…


Wah, can get OCD like that wei…


Anyway, the animated ad is at the bottom of MSN Live Messenger and it expands into a larger ad with text from my entry on the KFC Toasted Twister.


The cursor is changed to a Toasted Twister wrap and it warps the letters around the text excerpt. There are excepts from two blogs, with the top one being mine and a photo of me eating the KFC Toasted Twister.


Warp is an anagram for wrap. There’s a mini-game where you find all the words – I think it’s supposed to be “Try me now”.


I clicked on the link in the advertisement and it really links back to the KFC Toasted Twister entry that I did. Nifty. πŸ˜‰

Toasted Twister = KFC toasted chicken wrap
Twisted Toaster = Home appliance that enjoys toasting your fingers

  1. Huai Bin,
    How much are you making right now at your current job in Sibu?
    Can you recommend me if there’s any openings for IT positions at your company?

  2. hi there HB. actually the KFC ad ion MSN Live Messenger is how i chanced upon your website again and realised its now alive and kicking. I have been following your site since 2002 and the days as well. was a pleasant surprised to see your site featured on an MSN ad and i couldnt believe my eyes at first (did’t help that I was trippin’ out LOL) when it showed the url to your site. Sweeeettt πŸ™‚
    So how did this thing come about if you dont mind me asking? KFC contacted you and agreed to pay you a certain amount based on clicks generated through the MSN ad?

  3. Hey! That’s one thing you can do! Be a model in ads!!!!….You can do a fitness ad, and you’ll bethe AFTER…and I’ll be the BEFORE!!…..Me too old? Eddy can or not? Hahahahahahaha!!!! Sorry, Eddy. Just joking, eh!

  4. JustinKC: I just happened to chance into it. Media agency contacted me and asked if they could use my post and I said sure. πŸ™‚
    annant: Well, I was never the mainstream blogger anyway, so yeah, this is the next best thing to making front page headlines about being an evil website. πŸ˜‰
    Danny Ling: It’s very, very low. Sibu doesn’t pay well. I would say avoid at all costs (no pun intended). Try Kuching if you’re in the IT line.
    Blue Curacao: Hmm…it’s probably a good 10-15 minutes. Jesus Christ. Oh well, I had nothing better to do then anyway. πŸ™‚
    kandyman: Hello there! Thanks! Hmm…so the ad does produce results. Cheers for being a long time reader. – man, those were the days. It was crazy and I won’t want a rerun but it was fun while it lasted. πŸ™‚
    No, I wasn’t paid a single cent for the ad. I allowed the text and images to be used for free in return for an inbound link.
    Thanks for reading!

    I am trying to break free from the shackles of myself. Destiny, History. I have to shake off the haunted ghosts of the past shackling me.

  5. This weblog appears to get a great deal of visitors. How do you advertise it? It gives a nice individual twist on things. I guess having something real or substantial to say is the most important factor.

  6. Aw, i thought this was an incredibly nice post. In concept I would like to devote writing this way additionally – taking time and actual effort to create a top notch article… but so what can I say… I procrastinate alot and also by no indicates often go completed.
