Thanks to The One Shots for picking up this story!

@TristanMaack was just your average Canadian man on Twitter. On April 15 he saw that the phrase “Welcome to the Overdose Era” was trending and assumed that it had something to do with overdosing on drugs. One click for him and he quickly learned that he was wrong. “Welcome to the Overdose Era” was trending because of EXO and their upcoming comeback for “Overdose.” Tristan Maack proceeded to tweet about his misunderstanding, unaware that he had just introduced himself to the EXO fandom.
