I mostly forgive One Direction for all previous douchebaggery

(for previous douchebaggery see evidence a and evidence b)
But this video is the best.

It's a great pop song with a ridiculous music video that makes fun of pop videos. And look at their skinny little bodies! D'awww

And I'm not even sorry that 2 out of four of my blog posts have been about One Direction.  HBDGAF. Also, thanks for joining us, Will.


  1. I am appalled at your fixation upon bubblegum pop sensations One Direction. And I will roundly chastise you as soon as I am done watching this video. For the second time.

    Also, Zayn is clearly the cute one. But that giant blonde streak in front has to go.

    This boy band resurgence is making me think of Lou Pearlman, the crazy mccrazy responsible for the Backstreet Boys and 'Nsync, among other groups. If you haven't heard of him, he was Art Garfunkel's first cousin and once owned a blimp business, and things just get nuttier from there. He was also, ahem, perhaps a little too fond of, ahem, the lads. Ahem. And he was a major white collar criminal. You can read his Wikipedia page for a nice little outline, and Vanity Fair did a great piece on him a while back:

    Moral of story: keep dreaming, fat middle aged men of America, and someday you might have a piece of that hot, hot Zayn action.

  2. very funny!!! revisiting decades of rock/pop music scenes!!!!!!!
