"To clarify, this pic was of Ryland trying to fart."

Shane Dawson has finally addressed that Valentine's Day tribute to his fiancé Ryland Adams and the explanation is… really something.

Basically, Shane shared a selection of images to his "forever farter" Ryland on Instagram for Valentine's Day. Among the images were cute selfies… and a pic of Ryland bent over, while naked from the waist down. "My best friend, future husband, and forever farter. Love u more than I can ever explain," he captioned the images.

Naturally, people came to their own conclusions about what was, um, going on in the photo. But apparently it's not what we're all thinking. The YouTuber headed on Twitter on Sunday (Feb 23) to clarify why he shared the intimate pic and what was actually going on.

"To clarify, this pic was of Ryland trying to fart," he explained. "Today someone said to him 'I can’t believe Shane posted that pic of ur butt waiting for a dick!' and it was at that moment we realized what we had done. To those who had to visualize our butt sex on Valentine’s Day, I’m sorry."

He added: "To double clarify, I don’t think anyone was actually mad about this and this apology was just to inform u that no, we don’t have sex on the floor with our clothes on. hope ur having a nice weekend."

In case you didn't know, Ryland has a very particular way of passing gas and has previously demonstrated his farting "hack" before. Apparently, to relive himself and stop tummy aches he gets into a special position to fart that helps to release the gas.

Um, whatever it takes. I guess…
