One of Canada's greatest treasures turns 20 today. No, it's not maple syrup or moose...it's Shawn Mendes!
The canadian singer- songwriter is another year older and still more successful than all of us. How did this guy go from singing covers of Ed Sheeran in his house to selling out stadiums in just a few years? Vine.
Shawn got his start on the short video format in 2012 when he was only 14. He had more than half a billion views in just four years. Here are some of the best of the best of Shawn's vines.
This is his very first video to reach one million loops, for those of you who weren't around for the golden age of vine, they are views.
The cold wouldn't bother me anyway if I had Shawn Mendes sing this to me every single day of my life.
This vine is when Shawn started getting 7 million views on his videos.
Shawn went on to do many, many covers of Ed Sheeran during his Vine career.
Yes, yes I will stay with you Shawn. ALWAYS.
His Adele cover was one of the last videos he posted on the app before he went pro.
Don't we all wish we were these girls?
AND A CLASSIC!!
