News of the newly-minted music power couple was made public on Tuesday night and spawned snarky commentary on Twitter and other social media platforms.

The hashtag #Chavril, a catchy combination of both of these fine musicians' names, was trending across Canada on Twitter. See more of them in our slideshow at the bottom of the page.

"You know those days when you're just a little bit embarrassed to be Canadian? Like, um, say today," tweeted @waltondawn

Yes. we know that many consider Nickelback one of Canada's more reviled musical exports and Lavigne isn't exactly a critical darling.

But Twitter user @wilnervision had it right when he pointed out the silver lining in #Chavril's engagement:

"Why is everyone freaking out about Chavril? This saves at least two other people from horrible relationships!" Well-played, sir.

We can only respond with this, now very awkward, video of Sum 41 lead singer, and ex-Mr. Lavigne, Deryck Whibley, singing Nickelback's "How You Remind Me." The circle is now complete.
