The „Elevator Boys“ are a content-creator group that has gained widespread fame primarily through their videos on the TikTok platform. The videos, in which a kind of role-playing game is made, became internationally known. The initial situation is as follows: As a viewer, you enter an elevator and in it stand the „Elevator Boys“. They flirt with their looks and body language. It is supposed to stimulate the head cinema of each individual. They became really famous when other TikTok users parodied these videos. However, the guys don’t take themselves too seriously. The origin of this fancy idea is a banal one: boredom.
Elevator Boys: Names and members
The five members of the content creator group, consisting of Tim Schäcker (22), Luis Freitag (22), Jacob Rott (21), Julien Brown (21) and the group’s „chick“ Bene Schulz 20 (years), got to know each other during Corona. In the beginning, each created their own content. After Tim and Luis met and became friends with Jacob, it didn’t take long for the group to start working together. Since the guys all lived in Frankfurt and only Julien was from Nuremberg, he was the last to join. That ended up being the lynchpin. From there, they started creating and uploading a wide variety of content on TikTok. They went viral with their POV (point of view) video „You enter the elevator.“ This has been viewed 1.2 million times.
The leader of the troupe is Tim, who works as a model on the side. The idea for the very first „Elevator Boys“ video, however, came from Jacob. The group is particularly popular because there is no rivalry among them. They convince with their relaxed manner and their authentic appearance. They harmonize well with each other and their main goal is to involve the viewers in the videos and entertain them.
