Ugh, I’m so annoyed, you guys. I really had my heart set on being comfortably disdainful of One Direction‘s new song ‘Best Song Ever’, and I was doing totally fine with that until the music video came out. I don’t know who taught these boys to be so charming, but it’s a little bit sickening how much their videos make me want to be their friend. More than any other boy band, these guys have mastered the art of seeming cool in an approachable, friendly way, like you could easily be a part of their group and everyone would have a grand old time. Which is I guess why so many tweens are writing such unnervingly vivid fan fiction about them, come to think of it.
I was already getting the hype a little bit when the alternate version of ‘Kiss Me’ came out…and while I’m nowhere near describing myself as a Directioner, I’m definitely starting to understand how people get so obsessed with them. UGH GOD WHAT’S HAPPENING TO MEEEEE.
Orrrr you can just skip to the video itself, which starts at 2:40, if you hate fun and puppies and laughter. That’s fine too. It’s all a great video, and I’m barely even disgusted with myself for saying that anymore. I know I’m getting older, but is it possible that my tastes are Benjamin Button-ing? Is that a thing? Please send help.
