One Direction ‘Between Us’ Commercial Filmed Before Zayn Malik Quit? The Proof

Thu, June 25, 2015 5:48pm EDT by 11 Comments

It was a bittersweet moment when One Direction’s ‘Between Us’ fragrance commercial came out on June 25 — the band now being a four piece still gets us emosh BUT wait, was this video filmed before Zayn Malik quit?!

One Direction fans — you guys should be professional investigators! Moments after the ‘Between Us’ fragrance commercial hit the web, loyal Directioners pointed out clues that prove the video was shot BEFORE Zayn Malik, 23, official quit the band. The sketchy part is that the video was shot in November and Zayn announced he was quitting in March! Confusing, we know, but don’t worry, we’re here to break it all down for ya!


The main clue that the video was shot before Zayn quit is the absence of some recent tattoo additions on the boys.

Does this mean the boys knew Zayn would be quitting all along? Since November?! We hope not — ugh! Well, wait a second. Some other fans on Twitter watched the behind-the-scenes video (above) super closely and realized there is a possibility that Zayn WAS there that day but since he is no longer in the band, they cropped him out.

Either way, it makes us sad that Zayn is no longer in the band! HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Was Zayn cropped out or did the band know he was quitting all the way back in November? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
