Project Trafford: Unveiled!


Project Trafford? What's that all about?

It all began one day, when I was in a really bitchy mood.

Bitchy. Yes, this is how I look when Shaun tries to argue with me.

Yes, I was REALLY bitchy and tired.

And when I was checking my Nuffnang analytics for the 215,542,124th time of the day, I saw this on the Nuffnang blog:

Nuffnang is currently launching a Top Secret Project codenamed ‘Project Trafford’. We are looking for 40 bloggers who are willing to participate actively in this secret project.

projecttrafford

Here are some details that you need to observe if you intend to be one of them;

  • Participating bloggers must be available and able to communicate actively via emails starting from the end of May 2008 till end of June 2008.
  • Participating bloggers must be able to work together in team and respond promptly to their team leaders.
  • Participating bloggers will be paid/rewarded handsomely.

If you think you satisfy the above criteria, please do write in to projecttrafford@nuffnang.com with your details such as name and contact number. Only shortlisted candidates will be notified.

Applications for Project Traffod has been closed. For those shortlisted, kindly reply before 2pm on Thursday 29/5/08 as a test on how promptly will you be able to communicate via email.

Well, I was feeling uber bitchy and just needed to rant, so I typed out this really angsty email. The only edit I made was that I removed my handphone number!
Subject: I'm the one you're looking for. Period.
Dear Nuffnang team,

This is why I should be part of your Project Trafford team:

  • Participating bloggers must be available and able to communicate actively via emails starting from the end of May 2008 till end of June 2008.
I'm 19, done with my A levels last December and have nothing better to do than bumming around at home, spending my parents money and check my blog like 200 times a day for comments. Yes, I have THAT much time on my hands.
  • Participating bloggers must be able to work together in team and respond promptly to their team leaders.
What do I do with all that free time that I have when my friends around me (who are already IN uni because they didn't do their A levels in Singapore like smartass me) are studying hard in school? Bum around online and check my gmail for interesting spam to read at a frequency of 75 times an hour. Yes, press F5 a lot these days and lay in wait on MSN for possible victims to prey on.
  • Participating bloggers will be paid/rewarded handsomely.
Yes, an unemployed boy like me who's living off his parents like a leech needs the cash, really, really badly. So who else better to pay than me? A rich, bratty blogger who has the money to fly anywhere in the world and camwhore in front of historical places of great interest, or this boy with no money to travel and spends his days burying himself in photoshop work affixing Dr. M's head on Leonidas's body cause he's too poor to travel anywhere. You decide (and let your conscience haunt you if you choose wrongly).

And besides, I have a great blog, and actually put great care into what I write. Doesn't that already put me head and shoulders above 99 percent of what you see posted on innit? I'm not exaggerating or anything, just read the damn blog.

So choose me. Period.

Wishing whoever that reads this crappy email lots of love (but maybe slightly less if I don't get shortlisted),

Hamlet's Hero of http://hamletshero.blogspot.com

aka

Kevin Chan

who can be contacted at 01x-xxxxxxx

and who is also a Glitterati member (see, I make myself sound like an absolute homosexual for you people, I better get shortlisted)
Yup, and I sent that to the Nuffnang team. It was highly cathartic and it made me a happy, happy boy. And even though I think (wait, I know) that my blog is awesome, I didn't expect getting selected for Project Trafford.

But I guess Nuffnang decided that they needed someone bitchy on every team, just to spice things up. (:

So here I am, writing for Project Trafford, but I can't tell you everything yet cause Project Trafford is just so TOP SECRET! The people up there in Nuffnang will reset my Nuffnang earnings to where it was 5 months ago if I say too much, too soon! Shhh!

This was 5 months back...

But I'll tell you what I can.

Project Trafford is Nuffnang's Top Secret campaign for Mister Potato (gasp)! And what we really have to do is to promote Mister Potato's contest which is giving out a free trip to Old Trafford, home of the Red Devils!

Yes, I'm made to promote potato chips.

So, what our team has to do is to come up with some plan or another to promote this contest (which is a no brainer hoard the proof of purchase game) to as many people as possible.

(:

And now introducing the team that I'll be working with:

Sultan Muzaffar
who's not really royalty from sultanmuzaffar.blogspot.com.

I think that's him on the phone. What he's looking at, I don't know...

Kar Yeong, aka KY (jelly) from kyspeaks.com.

KY's the one on the right.

But he insists on a more 'leng chai' picture. When the leader tells you to do something, you don't have a choice right? What to do?

The more 'leng chai' pic.

They are our two team leaders, as wacky as they look.

And we have my fellow team members:

Debra, who dates and dines all day long at debfong.blogspot.com;

And she just had to be eating in this pic...

Satkuru, from satkuru.com/blog (duh!);

Yup, enjoying the chilly highland air.

Foong, who speaks her mind (can't be someone else's mind right?) at foongsite.com;

She says she doesn't want to scare us with a pic.

YapThomas, the Ultimat3 from yapthomas.com.

Now I found another friend who likes fedoras. (:

Well, that's my Project Trafford team (as poser-ish as we all are), and stay tuned for more updates on Project Trafford! The links of my teammates are all on my sidebar so feel free to view their blogs!

Till I'm back with more Project Trafford updates and saucy details,

Hamlet's Hero signing off.

Pui Yean said...

Hahahaha love the e-mail ! It's so bitchy demanding etc and yet it's not overly so that it makes the reader think you're a complete ass :p

PS , what's a Glitterati -_-"

Suh Ming said...

yea, so damn bitchy right? and omg this project sounds so damn cool! can't wait for updates! ;)

Kevin Chan said...

Yean,

A glitterati member is a nuffnang member who exclusively uses Nuffnang ads in his/her blog and not the other Asian blog ad services. (:

Updates will come soon!
