Sum 41's Deryck Whibley Dresses Up As Ex Avril Lavigne For Halloween

Going as someone you know for Halloween often walks the line between funny and mean-spirited. Going as someone you used to be married to is pushing it. At least that’s what Sum 41 lead singer Deryck Whibley found out when he attended a party dressed as ex-wife Avril Lavigne and wound up getting clowned by her new fiancé Chad Kroeger.

Here’s a look at Whibley and according to Perez Hilton, his girlfriend Ari Cooper. He’s dressed as Lavigne, and she’s dressed as Kroeger…


No doubt the above costumes got some solid laughs at whatever party they attended, but even if it was a huge hit, there’s no way they got more smiles than Kroeger’s response. Here’s the semi-joke/ semi-serious left hand he fired back via Nickleback’s official Twitter account

”Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! –CK”

When the tweet was first released, many assumed it was incredibly mean-spirited, but Chad actually followed it up later with a comment about the four of them going bowling. Thus, it’s probably fair to interpret all of this as a good-natured series of one-ups.

Here’s to hoping Kroeger and Lavigne scramble and put together Cooper and Whibley costumes in time for Halloween.
