HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A Maui college student has his girlfriend to thank for his feet going viral.

Last week, University of Hawaii student Mark Cadiz shot a photo of his feet in sneakers and then in his girlfriend's sandals.

He posted the two shots side by side to Twitter with this message: "When bae has a chem lab and she forgot her shoes lol."

Cue the Internet going wild. 

Cadiz was instantly labeled world's best boyfriend, a title his girlfriend says is well-deserved, got write-ups in Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post. 

His original Tweet got 37,000 shares and was liked more than 164,000 times.

The University of Hawaii even wrote up the episode for its website, explaining that closed-toe shoes are a requirement in labs and that Cadiz's girlfriend had forgotten about the rule during the stressful week of mid-terms exams.

Cadiz -- aka @MarkwithaSea -- is having some fun with his newfound fame. His Twitter photo shows his own feet in his own shoes and his girlfriend wearing hers. And his revised Twitter profile? It's "SORRY I HAVE SMALL FEET."

In a recent Tweet, Cadiz wrote, "Bruh. My awkward toes being seen by thousands of ppl. Then, he wrote, "See you all on Ellen DeGeneres."

Let's hope so.
