Avril Lavigne and Tony Hawk team up for Sk8er Boi video on TikTok

Avril Lavigne has made her TikTok debut with real-life Sk8er Boi Tony Hawk, and it is absolutely perfect.

Avril Lavigne has just joined TikTok and sent the internet absolutely wild with the perfect nostalgic pop-punk video.

The 36-year-old threw things back to 2002 with her classic Let Go mega-hit Sk8er Boi, joining forces with real-life skater boy (or skater man, as he calls himself) Tony Hawk to lip sync to the pop-rock banger, before filming Tony performing some tricks on a ramp overlooking the ocean. The joyous video was done for National Skateboarding Day (June 21), with Avril also plugging Tony’s The Skatepark Project on her Instagram stories.
