Yesterday, on the eve of their three year anniversary, UK boyband One Direction caused a sensation on the Internet when they released their new video for “Best Song Ever.” And by sensation I mean a bunch of teenagers were freaking out. Here is the video in case you missed it:
He’s totally fucking right about this though:
The people, they loved it:
Then after that things got a little weird.
Zayn makes a pretty lady
I hope these kids take some time to examine gender norms and sexuality.
Hmmm, not so fast.
For some reason, the 1D-ers get immense pleasure out of forcing their parents to watch “Best Song Ever” until they admit it is wonderful. I can only imagine the parents are only going along with their child’s obsession out of love and probably also fear.
I think it’s because his hair is off his goddamn face because there is no way any parent would like Harry normally:
That is because anyone over 30 cannot listen to this with a straight face. It’s not personal, it’s a part of getting old.
No, your dad doesn’t deny it, he will probably be singing this song when he cuts work on Friday to go golfing and then he has to tell his buddies about One Direction.
I am probably your mother’s age and I don’t even know what these are supposed to represent, they are so fucking terrible. BSB, ?, ??, ????, Village People (a 70s reference? REALLY??). [I bet Brooke will know!!! -K]
Who DOESN’T love fat Niall? The answer is no one.
She is lying.
The level of commitment these kids give this video is ASTOUNDING. I don’t have time to watch any video thirty times in a row.
I think You Tube takes a long time to update video views because Twitter is making “Best Song Ever” seem way more popular than the numbers showed last night (I think it’s at over 8 million?).
Admittedly, this song is better than “That’s What Makes You Beautiful” but I just want to make some of these people mix tapes full of Sleater Kinney & Slant 6 to maybe inspire them to be in bands earlier and get that angst out.
I haven’t! I’ve seen BSE exactly 1.5 times.
Child, you should be lucky you get to go on vacation because soon you’ll be over 30 with a mortgage and your “vacation” will be installing a new roof and saving for your kid’s college tuition.
REALLY IT’S BETTER THAN THIS ONE?
Think about that for a minute. This video is ALSO highly gif-able, is full of hot boys and the song is really really good. [And they don’t sound like ROBOTS! I hate AUTOTUNE!-K]
This reference is COMPLETELY intentional:
I mean, his name isn’t Les Grossman, but it might as well be.
I’m too lazy to translate these but they all have the #bse hashtag so I’m assuming…
They even got CANADA in on it.
I literally don’t even want to know about this.
Now let’s take a minute to enjoy the real heroes of this video, the best actors in the band, Niall and Louis. Louis is now my second favorite after Niall.
