Girls Gone Wild: 'Chicsers' mall tour

-A A +A

Friday, February 22, 2013


I ARRIVED at SM City Annex still wondering who "The Chicers" were. All I know is that they have a huge following on YouTube. As I walked up to the entrance, I was literally floored by the crowd and the screaming fans during their mall tour at SM Annex last February 15.

The shrieks were some form of distortion and fuzziness in my ear, (like the way a speaker with too much volume distorts), you can't barely hear the group singing.

Mall security almost lost control of the crowd, after an unprecedented number of young girls showed up and got a little too wild, pushing and shoving as they waited for the show to start.

Chicsers, an all Filipino male dance group, currently holds the title of being the hottest and trendiest male group in micro-blogging site. Chicers is composed of six young teenagers -- Ullyses Webb Basa, Ranz Kyle Viniel E., Ongsee Biboy Chua Cabigon, Oliver Lance C. Posadas, Clarence Adrian J. Villafuerte, Oelejim Louis "Owy" C. Posadas.

Chicsers took the stage and do some straight up dance numbers, the most well-applauded was Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber's "Beauty and The Beat" and One Direction's "Kiss You" numbers.

I have to be honest, I was a little distracted with the death-screaming crowd, but because the boys are obviously handsome, and with their incredible charm and talent, I rest my case.

Chicsers' online presence gained momentum after posting, their "Teach Me How to Dougie" video on YouTube a year ago. I was amused to know that these boys got over 2.7 million page views on YouTube, more than 100,000 followers on Twitter, and nearly 230,000 likes on Facebook.

The boys already attracted shows like GMA's "Unang Hirit” and “Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho”. Their latest video, "Rabadabakiss," a boyish parody of sorts of the fabric conditioner commercial starring Kris Aquino and featuring the jingle "Rabadabango," posted last Jan 15, quickly became a Twitter trending topic.

Thanks to my much younger friends, who were obviously fans of the group, for the much detailed updates.

Chicsers may be among throngs of YouTube stars, and relatively a newbie but obviously with a good head on their shoulders and a dynamic group of young men armed with limitless talent, drive, energy and a fearless passion for music and performing.

I can say this group will go places and may soon find a niche in show business.
