Of course he had his Timmies on hand!
Instagram has teamed up with Shawn Mendes to share some behind-the-scenes footage from the set of his newest music video, and it's basically a love letter to Toronto.
On Saturday, January 15, the social media platform shared a mini collab with the Canadian artist about the "It'll Be Okay" music video, which he shot in the heart of the city.
"I'm really excited about this video. It feels really nice to be able to shoot in my hometown," he says while holding what appears to be a tea from Tim Hortons. Classic!
"I was just really craving to make music that felt super honest and super raw, and was going through some hard stuff at the time and hard feelings and the song just slowly came through," he shares, which could be in reference to his recent breakup with girlfriend Camila Cabello.
Mendes calls the experience "eye-opening" and reveals that being so honest with this song paid off, as he feels like it "resonates a lot."
"Being able to just walk around Toronto, which is where I usually go back to process things and where you'll find me and kind of my most intimate moments, and so it feels really kind of a perfect place and video for the song."
A funny moment in the behind-the-scenes video occurs when the director shouts for fake snow to be blasted at the singer, which is ironic since that's the last thing anyone from the 6ix probably wants in their life — especially with the current cold snap the region is in.
"I think ultimately, being vulnerable and being open in the moment feels extremely hard and frustrating and annoying," Mendes shares.
"But a lot of the time that pays off, you know, and every time you kind of have the courage to be vulnerable, you give others the courage to also kind of show up and be true. And that's a really, really powerful thing."
Toronto loves you too, Shawn!
