Individual Letter Color Flicker

I can't figure out how to achieve the animate-on text effect in this promo video. The words come on, and each letter blinks a couple of different colors before all landing on a solid color. Any ideas on how this is done? I'd greatly appreciate any help!

This looks like Text Animator with Wiggly Selector:
Text->Animate->Fill Color (setting it red will give you the colors like those on the video)

This already gives you the color effect almost like the one on the video.
Since there's also a varying opacity, you can Add->Property->Opacity and make it 0%.
To stop flickering, make Wiggly Selector -> Max Amount=0.
