Your Chavril Update: Yes, That’s Their Nickname

So here we are, a full three days into the Chavril Era, and the world is still spinning on its axis; Canada has not imploded; music continues to be written. It is therefore time to accept the impending union between Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger and pop-punk-something Avril Lavigne and to focus in on the nitty-gritty stuff, like: rings! And funny cartoons! First up, the jewelry: Chad bought Avril a 14-carat diamond, which is in no way a showy, protest-too-much-size rock, and it can be seen on the cover of this week’s Hello! Canada. (Chavril: the new Canadian royalty.) If you’re less into bling and more into harsh-but-amusing YouTube re-creations that imagine the Chavril wedding as officiated by a bear, then the tireless folks at have just the video for you.
