Shawn Mendes hasn't heard the end of "it's giving Cher." 

Connor Wood joked about the 23-year-old singer's viral Met Gala moment in a post shared to TikTok on Monday, Oct. 4. 

The video showed Mendes enjoying a drink. "Nice beer," Wood told him. "It's kind of giving share." Mendes then offered him a sip of the beverage and they shared a laugh.

"I think we should all give a little more share," Wood captioned the video. "@shawnmendes."

So what exactly is he referring to? Three weeks ago, Vogue filmed Mendes and Camila Cabello getting ready for fashion's biggest night. After seeing the "Havana" star's sparkly purple Michael Kors Collection dress, Mendes said, "It's giving Cher." 

The comment went viral. "Shawn Mendes saying 'it's giving cher' is in a constant loop in my head," one social media user tweeted. Added another, "Just bought Shawn tickets it's giving cher!!"

Even Lizzo tweeted about the remark—sharing a photo of herself standing next to Mendes and writing,"IM ALWAYS GIVING CHER, HOE."

Followers also couldn't get enough of Mendes' shirtless Michael Kors Collection outfit. The "Mercy" star wore a black leather jacket over his chest and matching black pants. 

"Met gala with mi reina," he wrote alongside a photo of his outfit on Instagram.

And it looks like Cabello was a fan of Mendes' look, too. "I almost tried to get him to take that jacket off down there," she told Vogue "I was like, ‘Take it off! Take it off!'" 

After Cabello and Mendes attended the stylish soirée, the couple kept the good times rolling by stopping by a star-studded after-party. While he kept his ensemble, she switched things up by changing into a black blazer and striped shorts.
