Castrol Football Crazy Futsal Session With Advertlets Bloggers

29 January 2011- Last Saturday, Advertlets, ESPN StarSports and Castrol got a total of 20 bloggers to sweat it all out in the very first futsal outing by Castrol Football Crazy, down at the Sports Planet, Subang Jaya. The session was hosted and refereed by non other than co-hosts of the show, Adam C and Jason Desmond (JD) to add a little touch of eccentric humour to football.

Castrol Football Crazy, the weekly show for avid football lovers who wishes to have their daily dose of footy gossip and entertainment as they incorporate new segments like the “Headline Grabbers”, “Random Ref”, “Host Challenge” and the “Castrol Rankings” which are sure to tickle your funny bone!

In line with their new season, they have decided to engage football enthusiasts and to start off, they have decided to have bloggers who are football lovers to share their passion in a game of futsal. The bloggers had a great time throughout the whole three sessions of intense football. Satisfied smiles and the stale smell of sweaty uniforms by the end of the day serves as evidence. There was even an extra session for bloggers to flaunt their juggling skills and shooting skills in the penalty shoot outs.

Jason Ong who blogs at had expressed his enthusiasm towards the show when he said “I think that it was a great day of futsal especially with Adam C and JD. I had been looking forward to playing with Adam since I seen him on TV. Though it was funny when Adam and JD gave out yellow and red cards without a valid foul, I think, that that’s the whole point of the show. Its Castrol Football Crazy! It gives out real entertainment to everyone who’s watching the show.”

To date a total of 6 bloggers who was there already blogged about their experience with Castrol Football Crazy. A total of 135 tweets mentioning the event were blasted off that created a huge buzz amongst their friends and families.

With this, Castrol Football Crazy had successfully achieved their hopes of reaching out to the football lovers of the younger generation through the cyberspace.

“I am glad that more and more companies are starting to believe in the power of social media and I am happy that we are entrusted by Castrol Football Crazy to increase their fans on their facebook fanpage in a long run,” said Josh Lim, the founder and managing director of Advertlets.

Bang! Presenting the Advertlets Bloggers Paintball Tournament!

The year 2009 is going to start off with a bang! (And some splats!) Advertlets is glad to announce that we are the official Online Partner for the most prominent paintball league in Malaysia, the Malaysian National Paintball League (MY-NPL) in year 2009!

As part of the activities for the MY-NPL 2009, we are having a special tournament for bloggers! Don’t worry if you haven’t competed before or even played before – the competition is open to prospective Paintballers of all skill levels. (except for pros).

In case you don’t know what Paintball is: Paintball is a game in which players eliminate opponents by hitting them with pellets containing paint (referred to as a “paintball”) usually shot from a carbon dioxide or compressed-gas powered paintball gun (or marker).

It’s not actually as painful as it sounds – it’s not just for the guys – plenty of girls play paintball too! Paintball requires stamina, team work, strategy and psychology in order to win a game, and it’s a whole lot of fun! Those that play online games will notice that has its similiarities to Counter-Strike :)
