Say Hi to the 'Party In The FIP' Boys

Date: 13-Sep-2009

They are cute, funny and in their summer holidays in Fire Island they made a little video spoof that got the attention of Miley Cyrus, Perez Hilton and the president of the Disney Channel.

'Party in the FIP', a teasing tribute to a Miley Cyrus song, went viral. Miley Cyrus declared her love for it on Twitter. Perez Hilton gushed. And the president of the Disney Channel gave the boys a call to congratulate them.

Star and director David Fudge talks to us about the clip and the boys involved.

1. What inspired you to come up with the Party in the FIP video?
I had heard the song a few weeks before my friends and I were headed to Fire Island for a week of vacation. We all loved the song and thought it would be fun to do a video to capture the essence of our summer at the beach.

2. What's happened to you since the video went viral?
I've had a LOT of people that I haven't heard from in a long time and hundreds of people that I don't know reach out to me. It's strange to think that something I did as a fun project with my friends has been seen by so many people.

3. what exactly goes on at Fire Island?
Fire Island is a barrier island off of Long Island, about 2 hours from Manhattan. The Pines is the gay community on Fire Island. It's a fun escape from the city. Everyone is very super friendly. It's like summer camp!

4. What do you guys do in your regular, non-Fire Island lives?
Most of us work in media. We're young professionals. Living in New York. Goofing off every chance we get and just enjoying life.

5. Any plans to top this video next year?
We definitely want to do more videos. And we've had tons of people asking for more. We've got a few ideas. You'll just have to wait and see what's next.

(With thanks to Garrett Hall.)

The new one featuring Whitney Houston's Million Dollar Bill is good as well. As I'm a Whitney tragic I may be biased of course.
