Right on tar­get

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - RADIO -

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.
