Conspiracy Theorist’s version of the Sonny Truyen story (this is completely made up):
Sonny Truyen walked into the office of 99.co and told the CEO he could raise the company profile within a week.

The CEO laughed. “If you can, I’ll pay you a year’s salary immediately!”

So Sonny accepted the challenge, and cursed online at Singapore for not having Pokemon Go.

Within a day, he was paid a full year’s salary.
