I don’t know about you, but I don’t always wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed like some kind of eager squirrel. Sometimes I roll out of bed and wander through my apartment for a while, trying to remember who I am and any potential places that someone could have hidden a latte for me. (Hint: none.)
But if you want a flush of adorable to warm your heart and wake up your mind this morning, look no further than One Direction‘s promo for their upcoming episode of Sesame Street. Apparently there’s no official air date yet, and they’re just tantalizing us with the phrase ‘sometime in the fall’, but don’t let that discourage you! All it means is that we have plenty of extra hours in which to watch this video in the meantime.
It’s a parody of 1D‘s song ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ that celebrates the letter ‘U’, and is called ‘What Makes U Useful’ — presumably the full episode will be all about words you can make that start with ‘U’, like udon, which makes a little cameo in the promo. Would I have preferred that the lads used the song’s original title and all came a’courtin’ the letter U? Yes, of course I would have. But we can’t always get what we want.
Case in point: I’m betting that Niall Horan really wanted to sing in this promo. I mean, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne all get to, but Niall just has to stand there smirking. I’d say that Zayn Malik was missing out, too, but he seems perfectly contented to just stand there.
