If you’re unaware of the “aggressively handsome” duo the Chainsmokers, brace yourself for saturation. Influenced by “Warren Buffet, puppies and well-crafted cheeseburgers” and distinguished by bushy eyebrows and an “uncanny ability to make love,” the New York City boys (Alex Pall and Drew Taggart) have entered viral territory with the celebrity-fueled video for the electro anthem “#SELFIE.”

Approved by the likes of Paris Hilton and Ryan Seacrest, the video—billed by record label Dim Mak as a tongue-in-cheek response to a global pop culture trend—features selfie-inspired cameos by EDM superstars Pete Tong, Steve Aoki, NERVO and A-Trak along with Snoop Dogg, Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries), Gossip Girls Jessica Zhor and David Hasselhoff in the midst of a Baywatch moment.
