Is it 2015 already? Wow. Where do the years go, am I right? You know what this means, don't you? Of course you do! You're no dolt. Of course you know Aaron’s Party (Come Get It), pop star Aaron Carter's sophomore album, celebrated its fifteenth birthday on Sept. 26. Of course you know that this is a major milestone. A milestone worth celebrating. A milestone that deserves not just any party, but an Aaron’s party. And not just any Aaron’s party, but a party inspired by the titular track. One "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" party, coming right up!

All set? Great! Here's the step-by-step guide:
Start the night off with shooing the “Mom” and “Dad” characters out of the house.
As soon as "Mom" and "Dad" are outta there, hang a disco ball from the ceiling of the living room and set up a stage on top of the pool.
Crank up the stereo like it’s New Years (play “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” on repeat, obviously).
Walk around the house like “Who’s the man?”
Open the front door and welcome all of the VW Beetle-driving “Invited Party Guests” into the house.
Jump on the table.
Lead the following call and response while still perched atop the table:
People all around you gotta/(Come get it) Everyone together sing it loud/(Come get it) Jump all around come on/(Come get it) What?/(Come get it) Say it again/(Come get it)
Interact with the flyer-toting “Uninvited Party Crashers.”
React to the “Invited Party Guest” who spills juice on a couch cushion.
React to the “Invited Party Guest” who breaks a lamp.
Head out to the pool stage.
Do the “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” choreography on the pool stage
Keep on dancing, my friend.
Put your white Nikes to the test as you scramble to clean the house and get all of the party guests to leave.
Cue the sound of a car door slam.
Cue “Mom” and “Dad” walking through the front door.
Get grounded by “Mom” and “Dad” (but don’t worry, the party isn’t actually over).
Everyone dances until the sun comes up.
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na, happy birthday-ay!
