Shawn Mendes Snow Dives In His Undies

Pop star Shawn Mendes stripped down to snug black underwear and frolicked in the snow, posting it all on social media.

Shawn Mendes has been a heartthrob for millions for years now. At this point in his career, he knows how popular he is, and he is well aware of the frenzy he’ll cause by posting anything online that shows even the tiniest bit of skin. Thankfully, the singer isn’t shy about his body – or showing it off, no matter the weather.

The Grammy-nominated musician recently posted several videos to social media that see him stripping down and getting… cold.

Mendes took almost everything off and ran out into a snowy backyard, and seemed to actually enjoy doing so, which is perhaps most surprising of all.

As he frolicked in the snow, Mendes was wearing nothing more than black underwear. His bare chest and toned abs were on full display. Initially, the cold didn’t seem to bother him.

In a second video, Mendes appears to take his time outside in the freezing temperatures. This wasn’t a simple in-and-out moment to shock his system and embrace the benefits of momentary chill. He even went as far as to go sledding in nothing but his undies, which isn’t something most pop stars would sign up for.

Mendes also uploaded two photos related to his outdoor escapade. In one, it looks like his friends, or maybe family, are there getting ready to go out into the winter air – properly, that is, with plenty of outerwear. In the other, nothing is seen but an acoustic guitar and a roaring fire in a fireplace. One can guess that perhaps the fire helped the singer after the cold, and maybe he played a tune or two.

Mendes captioned the post on X with two videos and a pair of images with, “you can take the boy outta Canada.” The superstar has clearly not forgotten his Canadian roots — he hails from Pickering, a city in Ontario. 

Last year was a quiet one for Mendes, and at the moment, there don’t appear to be any signs he’s gearing up for a busier 2024. He released just one tune on his own, “What the Hell Are We Dying For?” It was not a commercial success. Mendes last dropped the album Wonder in 2020.
