One Direction – Best Song Ever [music]
Sigh, fine, not really… but let’s take a break from royal baby fever for a moment to analyze One Direction’s new work of art.
The off-the-wall vid features the lads in a variety of disguises–and in Zayn’s case, heels–but the overwhelming consensus about the video is: “WTF is going on here?” Haven’t yet checked it out? Check below.
The video’s director Ben Winston tried to shed some light on the slightly confusing concept:
“The film that we’ve made This Is Us is really the boys’ story, and it’s not trying to make them anything they’re not,”he explained. “And that’s what’s incredible about One Direction, I think, is that they are a boy band that break all the rules and always do what they want to do.”
Whatever the motivation behind the six-minute vid, I think it’s hilarious and charming, just like the lads themselves. Do you like it or do you prefer a sleeker, sexier, more romantic version of your 1D darlings?
