Andrew Taggart of The Chainsmokers performs with Desiigner during the 2016 Austin City Limits Music Festival at Zilker Park on Oct. 1, 2016 in Austin, Texas.

Don't you wish you could see the Chainsmokers perform “Closer” live? Don't you wish Desiigner would then join them in a rousing rendition of “Panda?” Don't you wish you could feel like you're right there with them? That's a very specific wish, but hey, Samsung's got you.

This interactive 360° video clip of The Chainsmokers and Desiigner merking the stage at Austin City Limits is simply fire emoji. If you don't have a headset, grab on to the image with your cursor and flip it around. Get up close and personal on Alex Pall as he fidgets with the controls. Look right into Andrew Taggart's eyes as he sings. Feel the sweat drip from Desiigner's pores during his special guest appearance. Science is cool.
