Davin Tong      

One of the More Widely Known and Popular Entertainers on YouTube; Goes by the Name of Pyrobooby AKA Peter Chao

Davin Tong, better known by his alias Hamburger,,is a Canadian comedic vlogger and YouTube personality, known for his unconventional portrayals of Asian stereotypes, which alongside other politically incorrect videos have drawn mixed criticism from several sources. Born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada, Tong is the second son of "Chinese immigrants," while his character Chao was born and raised in Hong Kong. Tong is bilingual, speaking both fluent English and Cantonese.

Tong produced an early version of "Paper Trail," a minute-long short film pertaining to a neighbor caught stealing newspapers, with director Travis Grant. The film caught the Vancouver Film School's attention, and it subsequently issued scholarships to them. Tong graduated in 2008.

Tong realized his flair for vlogging when one of his first YouTube uploads, about a Chinese restaurant run by Indians, garnered around 15,000 views. Under the username pyrobooby, Tong adopted the guise of "Chinese Guy" and later Peter Chao. Tong described the character as born and raised in Hong Kong and "a zany Chinese immigrant forced into Canada by his prostitute mother. Instead of listening to his mother to go to school, he decided to pursue comedy on YouTube."

Chao has appeared frequently in Elite Canadian Championship Wrestling beginning July 6, 2013 in Port Coquitlam, B.C. where Colt Cabana taught him a few things about wrestling. He was a part of ECCW Ballroom Brawl at the Commodore Ballroom in January 2014, the largest attendance for independent wrestling in Vancouver in the last 25 years.
