Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger's video for "Let Me Go" has been out for a while, but we're still trying to figure out what this music video is all about. Over at Jezebel, Katie Dries has come up with the following rationale in an attempt to explain this brief but very complex love story:
There is a distinguished old man. He finds a magic cabinet. The cabinet holds his trusty guitar and a beautiful suit. He puts on the suit (no, there's no nudity; unfortunately, this whole vid is totally SFW if SFW = your office won't judge you for watching a Chavril video). He performs a song while sitting in front of a magic Harry Potter-esque Mirror of Erised that reflects a younger version of himself to Avril...which she watches on an iPad? Anyway, old man has no iPad because he is but a lowly groundsman but he is privy to a vision of a young version of Avril playing the piano part of the song. (Avril actually stays young during the whole video, proof that she truly is a witch.)
In short, Avril's worried that Chad's music career won't pan out and he'll end up becoming a gardener. Sounds totally legit. Here's the clip in case you needed a reminder on just how terrible these two sound together.
