Right on target
One red FM listener finally got the mystery clip right and was richer for it.
UNLIKE the name of the movie, the contest turned out to be anything but “Cursed” when one contestant guessed the answer to Red FM’s What’s The Movie mystery clip and walked away with RM11,900.
In one of the most lucrative contests on air, Terry plays a line from a movie on Red FM’s Drive show (Monday to Friday, 3pm7pm) and listeners will have to guess which movie the line comes from.
The prize money snowballs each time an incorrect answer is given. This challenging yet rewarding contest tests listeners’ knowledge of the movies with just a short sound clip.
As the prize money went up for one particular clip, listeners made numerous attempts to find out which movie the line came from.
However, it was by a stroke of luck that saw Melvin Teh Chin Yu winning the snowballed prize money.
Teh chanced upon the line in the movie when he watched it on his brother’s recommendation. With a hunch that it was the same clip that was being played on Red FM’s What’s The Movie, he browsed through the station’s website as all the wrong answers were put up to assist listeners in increasing their chances of winning.
When he found out that Cursed was not among the movies listed on the website, he made just one phone call to Terry and that was enough for him to win all of the prize money.
Apart from celebrating the win with his family over a nice meal, the money will also go towards Teh’s new home.
Having just moved from Penang to Kuala Lumpur to start a new job, the money came in handy for this medical sales representative.
It was a merry affair when Terry met Teh to congratulate him as both were equally excited at the generous giveaway.
In the meantime, the contest continues on air with another mystery clip.
With the prize money on the up if there are no correct answers, it’s anybody’s guess just how high it can go. Keep an ear out for it and you could be the next big winner.
