The pair recorded their entire day building up to the major event in the “Get Ready” video, and they run into Hailey Baldwin, 24, and Justin Bieber, 27, in the lobby near the end of the eight-minute video. People think it’s the most awkward run-in ever, therefore the video has gone viral on TikTok.
Both couples’ interactions may be seen at seven minutes and 22 seconds. Camila recognizes them right away, waves, and walks over to them with a big smile on her face. Shawn embraces Hailey and Justin, and Hailey smiles but remains utterly mute. “You went with the no shirt vibes, I like it,” Justin said to Shawn at one point. “You had to flex it if you have it,” he remarked with a giggle.
While Justin and Shawn exchanged pleasantries, Hailey remained silent and hardly made eye contact with Shawn. She then grabbed Justin on the shoulder and said, “alright sweetie, we’ve got to get ready,” before immediately looking at Shawn and Camila and saying, “we’ll see you guys there.” Justin looked unconcerned with the situation, as he walked away stating, “I love you guys so much.”
The fact that Shawn and Hailey were one other’s Met Gala dates added to the awkwardness of the encounter. Hailey and Justin married five months later. This encounter was so embarrassing that people gushed about it on TikTok.
“The tension here is simply too much,” one user said, while another said, “I feel weird watching this just thinking about their past.” Some, on the other hand, defended them, saying, “Honestly, this is every 20-something year old interaction.” “If this is awkward, thank god no one is filming my interactions,” another person said.
