Whether or not you’ve embraced the return of boy bands, they’re back and possibly bigger than ever. Unlike the days of *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys, One Direction fans have the power of social media. All their GIFS, memes and hashtag trends makes your 98 Degrees bobblehead doll collection look pretty lame.
Seriously, spend 16 minutes on Tumblr and you’ll be overwhelmed by how much love the 1D family has for Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan. It’s beautiful and awe-inspiring and scary are all the same time. Especially when instagram gets involved.
And you know what their haters have? Video capabilities on their phone and access to Youtube. It takes mocking boy bands to an entirely new level. The Key of Awesome, a semi-professional song mockery group with an impressive 1,825,000+ Youtube subscribers, spoofed One Direction’s music video for “What Makes You Beautiful.”
While the spoof includes a few lines that makes me think the members of The Key of Awesome might just be jealous, it’s still pretty funny. Especially if you’ve seen their actual music video over a thousand times like I have. So check it out below and let me know if you like this version better than the original.
