Evan's video depicts a love story through real tweets and TwitPics from his famous friends such as Avril Lavigne and Pete Wentz. Was it hard to get his celeb pals to be a part of the project? Not in the slightest. "I'm lucky to have cool friends who wanted to help, so when I asked it was no biggie," Evan told JSYK.
Although the 'Merry Swiftmas' songwriter received a very special tweet back in the day from Taylor Swift herself, he decided not to hit the country star up for his video. He explained, "Well u know @taylorwift13 is already spoken for and since I got her tweet love once at xmas time I figured I'd give her a pass."
Right now, Evan is riding the wave of his debut record, and looking forward to hitting the road with Avril and on his own solo tour soon. Read our entire Twitter-view and watch the full 'Pumpkin Pie' video after the jump. 'Welcome to the Blacklist Club' is available in stores and on iTunes now.
