One Direction get goofy across the globe in their “One Way Or Another” video.
One Direction’s been on QUITE the Red Nose Day/Comic Relief adventure (which only further proves how sweet/kind/caring they are… obviously). First, the boys spent time with underprivileged kids in Accra, Ghana, to support the U.K.’s Comic Relief charity, then they announced a brand-new Comic Relief single: a cover version of Blondie’s “One Way Or Another.” After that, we listened to the single IN FULL (and it was THE BOMB — duh). Next, we had a mini-swoon attack over Harry Styles baking homemade Red Nose Day cupcakes, and now, FINALLY, the boys’ self-shot (!!) “One Way Or Another” video is here!
Watch One Direction’s “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)” video after the jump.
Filmed DIY-style, “One Way Or Another” is an endlessly endearing series of goof-around scenes as the boys tour through various countries. There’s a conga line in Ghana, a classic open-air bus trip in NYC, and a glorious shot of THE BOYS IN KIMONOS. And let’s not forget the semi-naked, almost Rated R (well, kinda) moment with our favorite 1D bro, Niall Horan, as he boldly invites 1D fans into the shower with him. (Sorry, what? I couldn’t hear you over the high-pitched shrieking.) Yes, gals, Niall’s really wet, really soaping his hair, and really not wearing any clothes. We’ll pause for a minute so you can start screen-grabbing.
Why’d the guys do a self-shot video, you ask? Harry Styles explains, “Instead of spending a load of money on a music video, we decided to make it ourselves while we were on tour and give the money we saved to Comic Relief.” Love that! Way to keep it things classy! Oh, and again, thanks so much for the Niall shower scene! That seriously made up for any expensive special effects we might have missed.
