Neil Young had avoided joining Twitter until recently, but finally caved into 21st century promotional avenues a couple days ago. The musicians’ new album titled ‘Psychedelic Pill’, set for an October 30th release, is his first release featuring entirely original material in almost 10 years and obviously he want to inform the masses.

Young has already racked up over 24,000 followers, but so far is only following one person himself- Judd Apatow.

Judd Apatow and his 640,000+ followers are not only surprised (and impressed) by Young’s fandom, but it seems to be causing a little bit of anxiety.

Upon discovering that Apatow is Neil Young’s only source of Twitter-tainment, he posted, “I am the only person @NeilYoung follows. I can’t breathe. My blood pressure is dropping. What is happening??!!”.

Since that initial tweet was published (only 14 hours ago), Apatow has tweeted many other Neil Young-themed or targeted lines including, “I still can’t breathe. I took a baby aspirin to prevent a heart attack” and “With a shirt off I always look like the guy on a reality show who just lost all the weight but can’t lose the flab. Good one @neilyoung?”

Neil Young has not commented on his decision to only follow Judd Apatow. Is he indeed a huge fan of the ’40-Year Old Virgin’ director, or did Twitter simply recommend Apatow upon joining, so Young clicked on ‘Follow’ to see how the site worked?
