Justin Bieber wants Tim Hortons to go back to their old lids

Tim Hortons changing their lids to a new design didn't exactly make the cut as a defining moment of the decade, but it did get under the skin of one Canadian superstar.

Over the weekend, Justin Bieber conducted a highly scientific study via the polling feature on his Instagram stories, asking one pressing question of his Canadian followers: Who misses the old Tim Hortons lids?

A resounding 70 per cent voted yes, they do miss the old lids that were swapped out with a new an improved version back in 2018.

"These new lids are uncomfortable on the mouth, and you get very little liquid each drink it's a damn outrage and needs to be changed back," He said in the Instagram caption with the results of his poll.

The singer went on to say that the lids shouldn't be plastic, and that Tim Hortons should find a way to recycle them. 

Unbeknownst to Bieber, the lids actually are more environmentally friendly because they're made of polypropylene, a recyclable plastic.

Tim Hortons responded to Bieber letting him know that they're already one step ahead of him, and the singer welcomed their response. 

Could this mean a Tim Horton's and Justin Bieber Collaboration? It wouldn't be the first time a Canadian pop singer did it, right Shawn Mendes?

The quintessentially Canadian saga continued on Saturday night, when Bieber and his wife Hailey were in attendance at the Maple Leafs-New York Rangers hockey game in Toronto. At the game he was gifted a huge sleeve of the old lids. 

The singer wrote on his Instagram story "we lost but I got a bunch of lids so there's a win out of the night somewhere."

This is where it's at @timhortons

The next day, Bieber posted a picture of him enjoying a coffee while using the retired version of the Tim Hortons lid.

"this is where it's at," he wrote.
