Don't you hate it when your favorite fast food menu item gets discontinued?
It's practically a double-slap in the face. For one, you'll never be able to purchase that amazing, junk food goodness that used to bring so much joy to your life. The second slap is that you're part of a demographic that was deemed so small by the franchise that you're not worth keeping the item around for. And that hurts.
While most of us would just sit idly by and complain about the tragedy that's befallen us, Twitter user Farhan decided he would keeping pestering KFC until they brought back his favorite menu item of theirs: Hot Devil Drumlets.
The Singapore-Exclusive KFC spicy chicken made such a profound impact on Farhan that he would reply to every tweet the fast-food chain sent out with a firm request that they bring back that spicy chicken he was so fond of.
I'd rather paint my fingers with hot devil drumlets' powder residue..mmmmm— Farhan (@farthestofhans) October 4, 2016

Farhan kept it up for a year...
u know what's too good to be true? the return of hot devil drumlets— Farhan (@farthestofhans) December 19, 2016
...until he finally got a response from KFC: they DM'ed him.
In an interview with Mashable, Farhan said that he couldn't believe his extended joke actually impacted KFC enough to bring back their favorite food of his.
"My first reaction [to this was] nah, this has to be fake...because my close friends know I love fried chicken. 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."
KFC confirmed that they'll indeed be sending Farham his own box before the item becomes available in stores across Singapore.
"As an appreciation for his fervent support, we wanted to let him have the first taste of the Hot Devil Drumlets comeback," A KFC spokesperson said.
And they made good on their promise.
That just goes to show you kids, persistence pays off.
