How do I recruit boys to a middle school choir program?

Last year I let all 6th grade boys who were choir members in good standing at the end of the year throw a pie at me. This year, I do have more boys and they keep asking about pies...
One of my colleagues also made a promotional video starring some of the "cool" junior high boys. The 6th graders loved it.
I landed quite a few new recruits this year by personal invitation and some pestering. They like to know that someone really wants them to join. Flattery goes a long way!
