There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now. With the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, people are anxious and unsure of what’s going to happen next. But if there is one thing that we can be sure of right now, it’s that Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are absolutely spiralling.
The musical couple—who are currently quarantining together in Miami, Florida—have been “caught” by paparazzi practically every day of their isolation going for a casual early morning stroll (emphasis on the word casual). And while getting in some physically distanced exercise is a definite must during these challenging times, these strolls are downright eerie.
In a March 31 video, the couple were seen walking at a pace that can only be described as post-apocalyptically glacial (seriously, are they auditioning for The Walking Dead?!).

Why are they walking like this?? And why are Cabello’s pants so freakin’ long?! Many questions need to be answered.
This recent video came just days after the pair—who have often been snapped holding coffee cups on their neighbourhood walks—were pictured walking with *visibly* empty coffee cups. And no, we don’t mean empty as in they enjoyed their cup of joe as they circled their cul-de-sac and then were photographed. The inside of those cups were crisp white—not a trace of java anywhere.

And honestly, this is truly chilling. Because from the truly bizarre walk (which was probably slowed down so the paps could take photos) to their awkward Insta live sing-alongs and the prop mugs, it has become painfully apparent that not only is Cabello and Mendes’s relationship staged AF, they don’t even seem to care that we know.
The isolating and pandemic has clearly gotten to them. Not even the newly coupled, just-as-fake pairing of Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are *that* transparent. (For anyone scoffing at the suggestion that these co-star’s relationship is of the fake variety, I have one thing to say: no one looks *that* happy walking their dog).

And if their relationship *is* staged, I have so many questions for Cabello and Mendes. Like…What’s it like to be stuck in isolation with someone who you clearly barely talk to? Whose home is this and why can paps so easily access it? What is this relationship even promoting at this point? And, again, why are Cabello’s pants so frickin’ long?!
Maybe Madonna *was* right. Perhaps this virus truly is “a great equalizer.” As in everyone is over it, even celebs in PR relationships.
