July 9, 2009

One day, I saw my friends on Facebook became fans of Back Dorm(Dormitory) Boys. I don’t familiar with this name.. Then I try to open his account.. wew some stupid people famous through YouTube… On Facebook, they have 59,787 fans(my friends included haha).. It suck 😛

The Back Dorm Boys is a Chinese duo who gained fame for their lip sync videos to songs by the Backstreet Boys and other pop stars. Their videos, captured on a low quality Web cam in their college dorm room, have been viewed by Internet users within China and around the world.

Dadada video

The Dormitory Boys, a blog of note on Blogger, which some believe is not maintained by the Back Dorm Boys, but written by a ghostwriter, is taking requests asking fans to recommend the next song they should lip sync too in a possible dorm background. In January 2006, a poll was conducted from songs picked from 427 requests on this blog in 2005, December . The Black Eyed Peas’ song “My Humps” won the poll, but the Back Dorm Boys lip synced to the song “Don’t Lie” by the Black Eyed Peas instead, which was a huge hit on YouTube as well as their host country…

Then became famous..


As many fans do not know the real names of the Back Dorm Boys, Wei Wei is often called simply “the big one” and Huang Yi Xin “the small one”. In most videos, Wei Wei is seated on the viewer’s right and Huang Yi Xin on the left. Huang Yi Xin has a cast on his left arm in some early videos from when he got hurt playing basketball.

A third “dorm boy”, Xiao Jing, is in the background of most of the videos. He is often playing the Counter-Strike computer game while Wei Wei and Huang Yixin are performing. His back is usually turned to the camera and his face is only rarely seen. He does, however, occasionally play a role in the videos. In the video for the Trio song “Da Da Da”, Xiao Jing gets up from his chair to hold a cardboard soccer ball in the air for Huang Yi Xin to head and kick.

Xiao Jing did not appear in the video for ‘Radio In My Head’.

The Back Dorm Boys graduated from the Guangzhou Arts Institute in June of 2006.
