"Today is the last video for me and Tiko," Moon says in the clip, adding that she hopes her fans will continue to support both of them as they separate.

"I'm so grateful for you guys, and I really hope that you don't hate us for this or feel horrible about it too much, but life has taken us different ways, and I really hope that you guys continue to support Moon with everything that she does," Tiko added.

The video doesn't get into the reasons behind their breakup, but it does seem like the couple were getting quite emotional as they filmed the video. Fans were especially shocked by the news because they had posted a video together just days before in which Moon made fun of Tiko for his lack of muscle. Moon has also posted other videos with her parents recently, and there wasn't any indication of marital strife in the videos.

Some people think that Moon and Tiko breaking up is a prank.

Because we don't know all the details and Moon and Tiko are known to be regular jokesters, many fans suspect that the couple may be playing some sort of elaborate prank through the video.

"I can never tell if they’re serious or not," one person wrote in the comments under the video.

"Wishing you guys the best at the same time hoping this is a prank," another person added.

Given how out of nowhere many felt the announcement was, many think it's quite possible that Moon and Tiko are pulling one over on their fans. Only time will tell whether or not they stay together.
