Actually No, You Can’t Afford That Rover From The Chainsmokers’ ‘Closer’

Calculations have been done and, well, sorry

If you haven't been playing The Chainsmokers and Halsey's song "Closer" on repeat since their steamy VMA performance a few weeks ago, then your Spotify account must really hate you. On Tuesday (September 6), The Chainsmokers shared a hilarious Insta about their song, though they don't know who originated the quote.

"Tbh if had a $1 for every time i’ve listened to closer by the chainsmokers i could probably afford that rover they be talkin bout," the mystery person said, referring to the lyrics "So baby pull me closer / In the backseat of your Rover / That I know you can't afford." But because we live in very strange times, someone — who clearly has too much time on his hands — calculated the cost and proved it wasn't actually possible.

On Instagram Wednesday, The Chainsmokers shared Connor Oliver's comment, jokingly calling him "a savage" since he ruined the previous post. In order to have enough dollar bills to buy a Rover, you'll have to continue listening to the song on repeat 24/7 for more than 70 days before you're cruising in your new ride. Sorry.
