And to think that I woke up today believing it to be just another ordinary Monday. It’s unfathomable to even think about now that I’ve seen the new One Direction commercial for the upcoming season of the British version of The X-Factor. In just 33 seconds it took me on an unforgettable roller coaster right through the boys lives and it filled me with emotions that I didn’t even know I had. Like hope and joy and happiness. In that sense, it’s not unlike the trailer for the upcoming Meryl Streep move Hope Springs.
Except this commercials has 100% less references to Tommy Lee Jones having sex, which I do believe is for the best.
As you probably know, The X-Factor gave birth to One Direction just two short years ago by finding the young boys, turning them into a boy band and creating the biggest pop sensation since LFO wrote a free commercial for Abercrombie & Fitch back in the ’90s. From a reality show to a worldwide sensation in just two years.
What have you done in the past two years? Gotten your braces off? Thrown up from heavy experimentation with Mike’s Hard Lemonade? Stalked your ex’s new girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend’s cousin?
That’s what I thought. So don’t reflect on your own life when reflecting on the lives of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson is so much more interesting, and so much more adorable.
