He’s given him Twitter advice, told Prince Harry to go out on the town with him, and regularly texts him using three different phones.
But now Ed Sheeran has taken his bromance with Shane Warne a step further – by getting his own Warnie-shaped bong.
Online retailer of Cannabis-related products Gatorbeug on Monday posted a photo of the flame-haired crooner unwrapping the product.
Yeah so Ed Sheeran somehow got a Shane Warne bong, the company wrote in the caption on its official Instagram page.
The 25-year-old is seen with a slightly sheepish expression on his face holding the bong, having just opened a box that it had been sent to him in.
It was not clear whether Sheeran had ordered it himself or if someone who knew of the unbreakable bond between the two larger than life entertainers had sent it.
The hand-made smoking device – which can be used as a bong or alternatively would look great on a bookshelf – was molded in the image of the legendary spin bowler and boasts details dark shades and 24 carat gold Nike earrings.
Warnie and Sheeran have been best buddies since they went out in Melbourne with mutual friends after a Kylie Minogue concert.
I really like him, he’s a hero, Sheeran said when recounting the night they met in a radio interview. I have three phones and he texts all three of them.
The bromance continued last March when the singer went to the Cricket World Cup final where Warne was commentating and was presented with a signed bat and customised Australian team shirt bearing Sheeran’s name.
Warne donned a sports cap as he presented the wood, which advised Ed to keep spinning and was signed Your friend, Shane Warne.
A few weeks later Sheeran returned the favour by in an interview with Sunrise encouraging Prince Harry to have a night out with the King of Spin while he was touring Australia.
I reckon Prince Harry should go out with Shane Warne, he’ll enjoy that, he said.
But the redhead is not adverse to jokes at his mate’s expense, giving him some mock advise on his infamous Tinder dating habits.
All those places have Tinder, be careful son, he said in reference to Warne’s heavy U.S. tour schedule last year.
Sheeran has been laying low the past five months after declaring a career and social media time out to travel the world and see friends.
He is currently in Australia with girlfriend Cherry Seaborn and was on Sunday dining with her and some friends at Icebergs Dining Room in Bondi.
