The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer took the stage at the halftime show in three outfits, one of which featured a sparkly red Dundas crop top with a matching fringed miniskirt and boots.
A Twitter user named Patrick Kling was quick to point out that Shak may have taken fashion notes from her Zootopia character, Gazelle. He shared side-by-side photos of the two looks, and the songstress really does look strikingly similar to her animated counterpart.

Upon realizing the similarities, the Twittersphere exploded into hilarity, sharing funny “outfit repeater” memes and putting the 2016 film on their to-watch movie list. Some even went so far as to say Zootopia predicted the 2020 halftime show. See some of the reactions below.
