They took her to the Burren!

Entirely unrelated entertainers, right? Wrong.

On Monday, Tara and Jedward tweeted a series of photos of them hanging out together at a huge mansion, holding hands in trees (yes, holding hands in trees):

What is this? How are Tara Reid and Jedward even aware of each other? Well: They’ve been friends for SIX WHOLE YEARS. Here’s a quick timeline of the relationship.

It all began in 2011, when Jedward appeared on Celebrity Big Brother with Tara

They got on famously. What could have possibly brought them together, you might ask? Well, Tara’s role in The Big Lebowski…

…And hair straighteners. The lads do know quite a bit about hair.

“John and Edward were the best things that could have happened in that house,” Tara told Digital Spy after her eviction.

[Jedward] are really smart. They totally get what’s going on… They’re so great and so inspiring. Give them a t-shirt and a pair of scissors and you can’t imagine what they can do. They can make anything out of anything.

After CBB, Jedward asked Tara to star in one of their music videos

She’s delighted to be there, god bless.

They walked the red carpet with her at the Irish premiere of American Pie: The Reunion in 2012

Then took her to the Cliffs of Moher after

And the Burren, too. Hope she appreciated that Karst landscape.

In fact, they go on holidays quite a bit

They spent Thanksgiving together in 2012:

Hit Ibiza in 2013 (the island probably hasn’t been right since):

And met ZZ Top in LA in 2015. Now there’s a group of people you never even dreamed you’d see hanging out.

There are many, many more photos of them in such exotic locales as St Tropez and Orlando, Florida. They’re practically joined at the hip!

She got them cameos in the 2015 masterpiece Sharknado 3

You know, the iconic series of disaster movies of which Tara is the star? Jedward also composed the film’s theme song, brilliantly titled Oh Hell No.

And sent them a good luck message for their second stint in CBB this year

They didn’t get to watch it, but still.

Now, they’re filming Sharknado 5 together in London

We’ve come full circle!

Ah, it’s cute in fairness. We’re still no closer to knowing what they actually talk about, but cute.

Long may this beautiful friendship last <3
