With a name like The Chainsmokers, you wouldn't expect parents to start co-opting one of the band's singles for use in their parodies—especially one known for so brilliantly capturing the millennial zeitgeist. But that's exactly what's happening with the American DJ duo's infectious hit song "Closer."
In it, Deva and her seriously game husband bust out some purposely cringe-worthy dance moves in front of a sticker-covered minivan while reminiscing about the good old days. You know, back before they had kids and their bodies began to betray them, when they had zero responsibilities, lots of friends, and a cool car.
"So baby don't look closer/at my wrinkles or my nose hair. My boobs are getting lower and my moves are so much slower. Chronic pain I have in my shoulder from the stroller that I pushed/'round my waist I have a boulder, we are all getting older."
So funny. And yet sadly, also so true. In fact, it was the Chainsmokers line about not aging that inspired Dalporto to make this thing in the first place.
"The chorus 'We are never getting older' made me shake my head in dismay," she explains in the blog post she wrote to introduce the video. "Um, yes you are getting older. We all are. I had a blast poking fun at all the annoying things that happen after you become parents and start getting older (like chin hair)."
Say what now?
