5 Useful ‘U’ Words One Direction Could Teach On ‘Sesame Street’

Gather round, young children looking to learn the alphabet/One Direction fans! The strapping young men of the world’s most popular boy band have an upcoming appearance on Sesame Street and, as the preview shows us, they’re teaching “what makes ’U’ useful.” In the clip, the lads sing about words that begin with and include “U,” like “udon” (for the precocious Sesame Street viewer), “ugh” (for exasperated children), and “up” (for the really young ones). While all of those words are perfectly useful (especially “ugh,” IMHO), we thought of a few ~fashionable~ options relevant to One Direction.

First up is the word suit. While it’s rare you get all five members in suits at the same event, when you do, it’s a beautiful thing. Suits are what make One Direction beautiful. JK, it’s their faces!

Since “udon” is included in the brief preview, we’re willing to guess the guys will be turning to other cultures for word variety. Enter the word jumper. It’s British slang for sweater and something Niall wears well. It’s a 3-for-1 word. Please include.

Our Moment, of course, is One Direction’s first fragrance. By including the word perfume in their appearance, they can teach kids about a very sweet-smelling spray some teenagers (…and adults) spritz on themselves. Never miss a product placement opportunity, fellas. I’m just looking out for you. You should bring me on tour.

Much like perfume, including makeup would be great product placement for team 1D. Even though girls “don’t need makeup to cover up,” One Direction happens to have a line of beauty products, so might as well spread the news on Sesame Street?

Finally, the most important world when talkin’ 1D: quiff. Like jumper, it’s a word that’s used in the UK more often than the U.S., but these young Sesame Street viewers need to strengthen their vocabularies. You can’t discuss Harry Styles’ hair adequately without throwing “quiff” around. I’ve tried. It’s impossible.

The episode air date hasn’t been announced yet, but we’re hoping some of our suggestions make it. How else are we going to get them all in suits??
