Persistence is key — especially when it comes to chicken. A KFC fan in Singapore named Farhan decided to make his opinion heard when it came to his favorite retired menu item. To vocalize his displeasure, he tweeted at KFC for a year about their Hot Devil Drumlets, which were discontinued back in 2014.

Farhan sent a response to many tweets sent out by the KFC social media team. Even though the initial tweet never had anything to do with drumlets.

What can you say? Farhan was so passionate about the spicy chicken drumsticks that he figured to seize the moment. Here are a few of his best tweets.

So it makes sense that Farhan was the first person KFC contacted when they decided to bring the item back.

The company sent him a direct message, with a photo of the new packaging for the drumlets.

Obviously, this is big news for a fan. In an interview with Mashable, Farhan admitted that he initially thought the messages were sent from his friends, in what would have been the meanest prank ever.

But KFC confirmed that it was them — all while acknowledging Farhan’s tweets.

Farhan is expecting his free box of drumlets to arrive on Wednesday. We hope they taste just as good as he remembers.
