He was a YouTuber, she was a singer - can I make it any more obvious?
Shane Dawson has had a truly iconic exchange with singer Avril Lavigne. Shane has already had a busy 2019, with his Conspiracy Series amassing millions of views and even causing some trouble for celebrity pizza mouse Chuck E. Cheese (and launching a thousand memes in the process).
How best to sum this up? Why don't we phrase it this way: he was a YouTube boy, she said "like your YouTube boy" - it was good enough for her.
(I get paid to do this, isn't that insane?)
It all happened on a little website that I like to call Twitter dot com, a hellscape that will ultimately destroy us all.

Shane tweeted out a picture of Avril's new song 'Love Me Insane', along with the caption:
"If you’ve missed old yodeling avril check out this song. If i was 12 i would be yodeling in my room with a towel wig on right now."

Avril then quote-tweeted Shane's tweet with a simple, yet elegant, star emoji (beautiful).
Aaaaand Shane freaked out.
He quote-tweeted this quote tweet (are you keeping up?) saying:
"I......... can’t....... breathe........ 😍"

It truly was a meeting of legends, and fans and fellow creators were hyped.

No word yet on whether we can expect to see any kind of full-blown collaboration between these too.
