One Direction Proclaim ‘This Is Us’ As This Week’s Hump Day Hotties

You know their names. You know all their songs. And this week, fans will get to know One Direction even better in their concert flick/documentary, “This Is Us,” which hits theaters on Friday. And while it kind of feels obvious to do this, we’re naming 1D this week’s Hump Day Hotties.

Check out this dreamy photo of 1D, and keep reading for more details about them!

Vital stats: The fivesome (Liam, Louis, Harry, Zayn and Niall), who met while competing solo on the “X Factor” in 2010, got together at the suggestion of Simon Cowell. And the rest is pretty much history. Like smokin’ hot history. Want to know more about them? Well, the fellas answered some of your burning fan questions earlier this week!

Where you might have already seen them: They’ve already topped the charts with two albums, Up All Night and Take Me Home. And, they’ve also taken home handfuls of awards, including four Moonmen. They added their fourth to their collection this past Sunday when they won Best Song of the Summer VMA for their kooky clip for “Best Song Ever.”

Why you should take notice of them now: This Friday, the guys will be the subject of their very own Morgan Spurlock-directed documentary, “This is Us,” taking fans behind the scenes while they travel the globe and also giving unprecedented access to their lives.

The group will spend this fall wrapping up dates on their Take Me Home tour before their epic stadium world tour, slated for next year. Oh, you want new music? They are also prepping the release of their next album, slated for tentative release at the end of this year.

Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute One Direction by gawking at the photo above!
