One Direction’s Niall Horan Went On An ‘Anchorman’-Themed Selfie Spree Backstage At ‘SNL’! (PHOTOS)

Niall Horan is having a major “Anchorman” blackout.

It’s kind of funny to think that while the entire world stans for One Direction cutie Niall Horan, Niall Horan stans for… WILL FERRELL! And half the cast of “Anchorman”!

In case you didn’t catch One Direction performing on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend (FOR SHAME!), we’ll just remind you that in addition to slaying renditions of such Midnight Memories tracks as “Story Of My Life” and “Through The Dark,” the guys also teamed up with the cast of “Anchorman 2” for a little boy band vs. man band competition, aka 1D and the cast of “Anchorman” singing ’70s nooner classic “Afternoon Delight.”

And, in 1D/ “Anchorman” moments you DIDN’T get to see, apparently Niall spent the rest of the night snapping selfies with “SNL” host Paul Rudd, Ron Burgandy Will Ferrell, and Mr. Champ Kind David Koechner!

Check out more “Anchorman” selfies with Niall Horan after the jump.

Oh, and did we mention that Niall wrote the sweetest, most adorable Stan-y captions? For former “SNL” cast member Will Ferrell, Niall wrote, “Here he is! The one and only ! Will Ferrell !” With his Paul Rudd selfie, Niall wrote: “What a super great guy ! Pleasure to work with!honour to meet! will never forget tonight!”

Tall hair twins.

Honestly, the only thing missing from this whole scene is Will Ferrell’s “stepson,” Macklemore. Which reminds us, do you think “Nine Direction” (aka Paul Rudd’s name for 1D + the “Anchorman” cast) has room for one more? Ten Direction is a nice even number, don’t you think?
