Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday Reaches UK

Good morning and happy “Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday” (#WCWW)!

While there isn’t a new #WCWW video from the Brewers bullpen today (yet/that we know of), we do have a special video to share with you here.

As you’re likely aware by now, the Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday trend was started back in April, featuring Brewers reliever Wei-Chung Wang (pronounced “WAY-chung-WONG”),  and his fellow bullpen teammates dancing to the song “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” by the Wang Chung Band out of the UK.

Past videos have featured the bullpen at Miller Park, with the mascots, in St. Louis, at the “zoo” and even a guest appearance by the UW-Badgers Men’s Basketball Team.

And this phenomenon has gone global. Not only popular “Across the Nation,” and in Taiwan, now the craze has caught on in the UK…with none other than the Wang Chung Band itself!

Wang Chung Band first caught wind of WCWW back in April and have tweeted in support:

But now check out Nick Feldman of the Wang Chung Band and his son, Max, performing a tribute to Wei-Chung Wang:

Enjoy!

Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday is Back! #WCWW

Good morning and happy “Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday” (#WCWW)!

After a brief hiatus, the Brewers bullpen is back with a new Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday video.

This one involves…a trip to the zoo? Well, a cage anyway. They must have been inspired by Sunday’s Koos for Kids event.

The WCWW trend started back in Ape-ril.

These guys are simply bananas.

They love to have fun off the field, but once they’re on the field, they stop monkeying around and it’s all business.

Okay, I’ll stop now.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday, Wei-Chung Wang!

Before this past Wednesday, you knew Wei-Chung Wang (pronounced “WAY-chung-WONG”),  as the Taiwanese Brewers pitcher who was acquired this past offseason in the Rule 5 Draft from Pittsburgh.

Post what has now been dubbed Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday,” (or for those of you on Twitter and Instagram, #WCWW), Wei-Chung is now a viral video star and somewhat of a Milwaukee legend.

It all started with some tweets from the Brewers bullpen and quickly escalated when Bullpen Catcher Marcus Hanel posted this video to Instagram:

Here, Wei-Chung Wang is featured as the lead dancer, with fellow relievers Tyler Thornburg, Will Smith, Jim Henderson and others serving as back-up dancers to the song “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” by the Wang Chung Band out of the UK.

Since then, the video has been picked up by many news outlets and viewed hundreds of thousands of times, including by the Wang Chung Band: Wang Chung BandWell, today happens to be Wei-Chung’s birthday and, with  #WCWW so fresh in our minds (and “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” still stuck in our heads), we decided to surprise him with a very special birthday greeting on the scoreboard. Wei Chung Wang

Check out his priceless reaction, here:

You can bet that Wei-Chung and his teammates certainly are having fun tonight, enjoying a 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs.

The Brewers bullpen reacts to the birthday message.

As for me? Here are four words I never thought I’d say: Is it Wednesday yet? https://twitter.com/TylerThornburg/status/459106288060747776

Now Trending: #WCWW Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday!

Hey guys, guess what day it is! Guess. What. Day. It. Is.

You may think of today as “Wednesday,” or thanks to that talking camel, “Hump Day,” but to the Brewers bullpen, it’s so much more than that…. Move over, Dromedary. It’s Wei-Chung Wang Wednesday, or for those of you on Twitter and Instagram, #WCWW for short.

Wei-Chung Wang (pronounced “WAY-chung-WONG”),  who was acquired this past offseason in the Rule 5 Draft from Pittsburgh, is from Taiwan. The Brewers reliever, who will turn 22 on Friday, made his Major League debut on April 14 vs. the St. Louis Cardinals, becoming the 11th Taiwanese player (8th pitcher, 1st Brewer) to play in the majors, and the youngest player from Taiwan to play in the Major Leagues.

The #WCWW trend appears to have been started by Brewers Bullpen Catcher Marcus Hanel last Wednesday, April 16:

 

But I have a feeling today’s post is really going to put it on the map:

 

In this video by Marcus Hanel, Wei-Chung Wang is featured as the lead dancer, with fellow relievers Tyler Thornburg, Will Smith, Jim Henderson and others serving as back-up dancers to the song “Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” by the Wang Chung Band out of the UK.

 

Looks like Wednesdays just got a whole lot more fun for Brewer Nation.
