Uncle Roger’s reaction video has received over seven million views on Youtube and has become viral  even on other social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

Quickly catching onto this, NTUC Fair Price  came out with an advertisement for a strainer that factored in Uncle Roger’s sentiments about keeping such a kitchen utensil far away from rice. Pricing it at S$3.50, NTUC FairPrice’s ad showcased the crossed-out words “For rinsing cooked rice.” Under it was a different phrase–“For filtering tea leaves.”
