Parents Turn Their Garage Into Club Quarantine For Their Son's 21st Birthday

Parents Turn Their Garage Into Club Quarantine For Their Son's 21st Birthday

For many, a 21st birthday party is one of the biggest celebrations of their life to date. Unfortunately, Jack Torchia reached the milestone during the coronavirus lockdown but his parents decided to take matters in to their own hands and create a 'Club Quarantine' for their son:

Jack's sister, Emily Torchia, 18, revealed her parent's garage transformation on TikTok and it's impressive to say the very least. Some people have even dubbed the family 'goals' and we definitely understand why.

Emily, from Roseland, New Jersey, was playing videographer while her dad, Anthony, posed up outside the 'club' as a bouncer and her mum, Carolyn, was behind the bar offering shots.

At the door of the family's detached garage (bar) a sign on the wall reads: "Must be 21 or older to enter" and Anthony made sure he was strict with the rule, asking his son to provide proof of his ID. Hilariously, he even scrutinised the driver's licence and shone a flashlight at it.

As he enters his private party, Carolyn greets the visitors with a cheerful 'Welcome to Club Quarantine,' before offering Jack shots upon 'realising' it's his 21st birthday night out.

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, Emily said: "The night of [my brother's] 21st was a great night. My mom and dad put in a lot of work to make sure it seemed as real as possible.

"My mom even made my dad memorize lines! In fact, it made this time in quarantine easier."

Speaking to TODAY, Emily added: "My brother enjoyed every second of it. We told him at dinner that he had to get dressed up because we were going to a club - the confused look on his face was hilarious."

The video Emily posted on her TikTok channel has been viewed 5.3 million times and it has 1.3 million likes with one person commenting: "Parent goals! This is some wholesome stuff," while another wrote: "Most wholesome healthy video I've seen today".

Emily explained to BuzzFeed that her family is very close, adding: "The comments are full of positive words about my family and my great parents.

"I always knew that they were great but the fact that over four million people saw this video and said the same is very heartwarming and something that my parents deserve as well".

Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread. Need some entertainment? Join Isolation Nation: https://www.facebook.com/groups/coronasupport/
