It’s been over a year since Chavril was revealed to the world and those engagement photos were plastered all over the internet with reactions like “WTF” and “Oh, Canada!” (both are valid). Since then, the couple has tied the knot and released their anticipated duet, Let Me Go. And yet, we’re still weirded out by this relationship. The music video for said collaboration doesn’t help our case.
To start off, watch the video for Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger’s Let Me Go below:
Here’s a run-down of how we felt while watching the video…
At first, we were like, “Okay, there’s an old man. What does this have to do with the video? We’re (sort of) intrigued!”
Then enter Avril, all glammed up in black, lying on a chair and playing the piano.
The old man suits up and grabs a guitar as Avril continues to sing, but then sits in front of this magical mirror and BAM, he turns into Chad:
What the eff indeed. Even though we don’t particularly care about the age difference between the couple (Chad is 38, Avril is 29), you two realize that many people think you two are an odd couple because Chad looks older (let’s not even talk about the horrible facial hair), right? So, making Chad secretly an old man in this video, metaphor or not, IS CREEPY AND WEIRD.
Then enter the most awkward scene we’ve watched all day…
STOP THAT, WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THOSE HANDS.
…Please tell us you felt the same. Let us know if you liked the music video in the comments below. We can help each other through this.
Bonus: For more cringe-worthy clips, watch this recent interview with the couple behind-the-scenes of the music video. WHY DOES THIS FEEL SO WRONG? BRB, I NEED TO CRAWL UNDER A TABLE AND HIDE FROM THE WORLD.
