When you think of Canada, you probably think of two things. Tim Hortons and singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes. While Tim Hortons has been around for a long time, Shawn Mendes got his start just a few years ago, and is now one of the most popular male singers. So who did Tim Hortons go to when they needed a limited-edition star on their cup? You guessed it. Shawn Mendes' Tim Hortons cup campaign will give you all the feels.
This afternoon, we broke the story that Shawn Mendes would get his own limited-edition cup at Tim Hortons. While the reason was vacant for a while, it's not anymore. Shawn will play his first sold-out stadium in Toronto this September, and Timmies wanted to commemorate that. You can view the beautiful cup below:
On the cup, it has his name in bold letters and says "Proudly Canadian" below it. Not only is the cup available in all sizes starting Friday, August 30th, but Shawn made a video with Timmies and sent out an adorable message as to why.
“I’m so excited to launch this incredible campaign with Tim Hortons in celebration of my homecoming Toronto show," the singer said. "Tims has been a part of my life since before I can remember and I'm so proud to share my love for this Canadian tradition.”
The Global Creative Head of Tim Hortons also had some amazing things to say about Shawn.
“Shawn Mendes is a great and modern representation of our values, generosity and kindness," Paloma Azulay said. "He has had such a deep personal relationship with Tim Hortons since his childhood, and now are proud to share his Canadian origins with the world.”
As for the video that goes along with the campaign, are you sure you're ready to get butterflies? If you are, you can view it below.
We wouldn't expect anything less from Shawn than an adorable video. If this doesn't show off his Canadian roots, then I'm not sure what will. If you're looking to see Shawn on his Toronto tour stop, unfortunately, it's all sold out.
But if you're like us, you can just watch the video on repeat.
