The Ingenious App That Will Stop You Stalking Your Ex On Facebook


Poor Chad Kroeger. Newly separated from Avril Lavigne, whom he married in 2013, and his band is still the butt of the internet's constant jokes.

This latest fantastic clip imagines the ultimate App to help you get over your useless ex: Nickelblock.

Everyone has the constant urge to check their Facebook to make sure that their former partner hasn't moved on, but we all know, deep down, that it's not good for us. Therefore, with Nickelblock is installed, whenever you search for your former beau, a Nickelback song will play. And if that isn't enough of a reason to stop your self-destructive behaviour, then we don't know is.

No, it's not a real app. It's just pretend. But it's excellent. Watch the video below to see it in glorious action.
