You Might Not Have Shawn Mendes' Abs, but You Can Have His Underwear


The latest Calvin Klein campaign has debuted, featuring Billie Eilish, Chika Oranika, Noah Centineo, and Shawn Mendes. We're going to focus on Shawn, because, well...he's Shawn Mendes! The Internet's favorite sweet-boy pop star who makes music videos inspired by Lost in Translation and also happens to be in possession of a jealousy-inspiring set of abs. 

True, true—we already knew this. This isn't Mendes's first rodeo; he starred in a previous CK campaign back in February and dropped a million jaws posing in just a pair of boxer briefs. But it's been three long, arduous months. The people need another look.

Plus, this time around Mendes is baring his soul for the people taking that look. The theme of the latest campaign is "I speak my truth in #MyCalvins," and Mendes does that in a video directed by Jonas Lindstroem. In it, the musician reflects on his life now, interspersed with images of him as a boy. 

There's also another clip from the campaign, this time focusing less on personal narrative and more on Shawn Mendes just being hot. Which, you know, fair. The guy does know how to rock a pair of white boxer briefs. 

Do you have abs like Shawn Mendes? Yes? Congrats! But even if you don't, at least you can still get your hands on a pair of Shawn-Mendes's-abs-approved pair of underwear. Actually, not just one, but three pairs. They might not cause jaws around the world to drop and John Mayer to slide into your Instagram comments to joke about his (not real) Fruit of the Loom sponsorship, but at least they're comfy. Call it a silver lining.
