The ‘One Direction’ boys are not making false promises! The video for their awesome new song ‘Best Song Ever’ really lives up to the hype, and I think it IS their best music video EVER.
One Direction have outdone themselves this time! After dropping their newest music video on July 22, fans took to Twitter to rave about how amazing it is, and I have to agree! The video for “Best Song Ever” really is the best video ever. Between the crazy costumes, the funny dancing, the brilliant acting by One Direction and Zayn Malik and Harry Styles‘s PDA, this is most inventive and brilliant video we have seen from the cute British boys! And the best music video that we’ve seen this year!
‘Best Song Ever’ — Best Music Video Ever
Speaking about the video, Niall Horan said “It’s probably our best video yet,” and he is not lying!
In the video, Niall, Zayn, Harry, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne all take on different personas, and it is hysterical to watch! Niall and Louis play clueless overweight record moguls, Zayn is the very sexy female secretary, Louis is a fruity choreographer and Harry is a nerdy movie marketing exec!
Louis is brilliant as Jonny, the studio exec, doing a totally convincing sendup of Tom Cruise’s hilariously vile sendup of powerful movie exec Les Grossman in 2008’s Tropic Thunder — complete with a balding hair and furry rug of chest hair. Niall nails a brash American accent as another phony movie exec who keeps repeating, ‘I love The Direction’, Harry is LOL as geeky, awkward Marcel, the marketing guy; Zayn seems to enjoy every second cross dressing as the sexy assistant and Liam convincingly hams it up as the swishy choreographer in pink leg warmers.
It’s so great to see the boys think totally out of the box, and it’s pretty funny to see Zayn as the sexy assistant hotly eyeing Zayn, the pop star, Liam as LeeRoy grabs Niall and kisses him on the head, Harry as Marcel rocks a bouffant pompadour and giant glasses, Louis makes an exasperated face at himself as Jonny and almost all the One Direction guys get a chance to dance with themselves! Plus, when Harry cozies up to Zayn’s female alter ego, I nearly cried with laughter.
Also, for the first time ever, the boys do a dance routine!
One Direction Dance For The First Time Ever
In the faux One Direction ‘movie pitch meeting’ situation, we see the boys get more and more fed up as they are offered a bizarre series of crazy outfits to wear, some of which I could imagine Justin Bieber or the Backstreet Boys wearing!
And the boys proved that it’s not just singing that they can do, as they do a really awesome but not cheesy dance routine. What a great change of direction for the boys — pardon the pun!
Forget “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Kiss You,” this is the best One Direction video of all time!
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Is this the best One Direction video ever?
