Superheroes aren’t the only do-gooders who hide their identities from their fans. The DJ community has long attracted a similar type of mystery man (or woman—we don’t really know).
No one does it better in Las Vegas right now than Wynn and Encore resident DJ Marshmello. Since breaking onto the scene in 2015, he’s racked up huge hits such as “Alone” and amassed a social media following in the millions. But he’s never given us a glimpse under his signature cylindrical helmet.
He could be anyone. He could be your neighbor, your Uber driver or your best friend. Although we may never know how he feels when he’s onstage, we created a personalized set of emojis that symbolize what we imagine Marshmello wants to express to all his adoring fans.
I’m Crying on the Inside Because This Song Makes Me Think of My Mother
If he could talk: “She was the sweetest soul, always the shoulder I could rest my can on. Even during the lean years, Mildred Mello would find a way to support my passion. Like the time she let me smash dishes against the wall just so I could record the sound. Oh, Mum, I’m so alone; nothing feels like home …”
Hey You in the Black Dress: Wanna Netflix and Chill?
If he could talk: “You look like the kind of girl who’s into Grace and Frankie. That’s great, because I got more charm than Sheen and Waterston combined—and I’m into you. Come on back to my suite; I got the new season queued up.”
I’m Melting Like an Actual Marshmallow in This Thing
If he could talk: “Everybody know me. Everybody know Marshmello. They just don’t know how much I sacrifice to make every night the best night of their lives. I can’t even lift this thing an inch to sip a cocktail or it would ruin the whole effect. And next weekend I gotta be at Encore Beach Club? In that heat? Maybe I can just stick this thing on a mannequin and run the whole show remotely from a cabana.”
If he could talk: “This feels good right here, looking out and seeing the whole Mellogang come together. It reminds me of that really old movie Empire Strikes Back. At the end, when the brother and sister are standing in the window with the robots, staring at the same bright star. It’s just like that, and we’re all brothers and sisters.”
Flying Around the World in a Private Jet Performing for Adoring Fans Sure Does Tire Out Marshmello
If he could talk: “These are the nights I really struggle to stay on my feet. Miami to Buenos Aires to São Paulo to Santiago and then back to Miami.”
Hey Guy, Stop Waving That Bag of Marshmallows Unless You’re Gonna Make It Rain
If he could talk: “What’s that you got there? Kraft Jet-Puffed? They’re ‘America’s Favorite.’ I don’t know how you sneaked that bag in the club, but unless you’re gonna shower these good people with sugar, I got better things to do than lock eyes with you. Wait, don’t start eating them. You’re making a mess! Security!”
