Yes, the world got to wake up to find that sexy stars Trevante Rhodes, Mahershala Ali, Ashton Sanders and even cutie-pie 12-year-old Alex Hibbert are the faces - and bodies - of Calvin Klein's S17 men's underwear campaign shot by Willy Vanderperre.
The stars of Moonlight are giving people something to talk about and it's all Calvin Klein's fault.
The cast of Moonlight came dressed to impress in the American label when they stepped out at the 2017 Oscars on Sunday evening.
While Hibbert looks adorable in a black T-shirt, it's Rhodes, Ali and Sanders that are making the internet swoon. Rhodes rounded out the trio in midnight blue with black facings. "They tell us what it means to be a man of the moment".
The images have been released on the fashion brand's Twitter as their SS17 men's campaign photos - shot by Willy Vandeperre. But the real star here isn't just the clothes-it's the personalities in front of the lens.
"Since the beginning, Calvin Klein's underwear imagery has always made big statements about masculinity; the performances of these actors in Moonlight affected us deeply and made big statements about masculinity in a different way", Pieter Mulier, Creative Director of Calvin Klein, agreed. "Somehow we wanted to bring the two together".
Calvin Klein's new creative team couldn't have planned it better if they'd tried.
