It’s the collab we all deserved. Avril Lavigne is officially on TikTok, and her first video is a beautiful nostalgic tribute to her famous 2002 hit “Sk8er Boi” featuring the most famous “Sk8er Boi” of them all, skateboarding legend Tony Hawk.
In the video, fans can see Avril sitting on top of a halfpipe in an all black outfit, and the pièce de résistance – her TIE! Anyway, Avril is lip-syncing along to “Sk8er Boi” as she sings the song’s lyrics, “He wanted her/ She’d never tell/ Secretly she wanted him as well/ But all of her friends/ Stuck up their nose/ They had a problem with his baggy clothes.”
Then, the camera zooms in on ~THE tie~ and when it zooms back out, it’s Tony Hawk!
Rocking the tie, Hawk hit the halfpipe and did what he does best as the rest of the song continues on, “He was a skater boy/ She said, ‘See you later, boy’/ He wasn’t good enough for her/ She had a pretty face/ But her head was up in space/ She needed to come back down to earth.”

The track is off of Avril’s debut 2002 album Let Go, which also featured the monster hit ‘Complicated’ and ‘I’m With You.’
The album earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album.
