Avril Lavigne partners with real-life ‘Sk8er boi’ Tony Hawk in TikTok debut
In a video published to her social networks account Monday, the Canadian songstress is lip-syncing her method through the 2002 hit.
Set versus a warm beach background, Lavigne is worn black shorts and a Tee shirts, total with a red and blue striped tie.
As the tune gets to the chorus, “He was a skater boy/She said, ‘See ya later, boy,'” the video camera shifts from Lavigne to expert skateboarder Tony Hawk — now using the tie — as he carries out stunts on a beachfront ramp.
Though now in his fifties, Hawk is the supreme skater young boy, having actually used up the sport when he was 9 years of ages after his bro provided him his very first board — and turning expert simply 5 years later on.
Hawk controlled skateboarding competitors in the 1980s and 90s. He was called leading vert — brief for vertical — skater every year from 1984 to 1996. He won 73 titles and has actually developed lots of skateboarding relocations.
Lavigne’s TikTok video was timed to correspond with Go Skateboarding Day, a yearly event of the sport which initially started in California in 2004.
In the video, the gifted vocalist tentatively jumps off the ramp just to come off the board and fall on her hands and knees. However that does not discourage her from getting directly back on and having another, reasonably more effective, effort.
Lavigne talked about the post: “Thanks for teaching me to drop in Sk8er Man… legend.”
This was not the artist’s very first public getaway on a board.
“Hope this makes you laugh as hard as it’s made my friends and I laugh all week,” she composed in the accompanying caption. “That’s what I get for sk8ing in my slippers and dress.”
