Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen One Direction’s music video for their latest single “History.” You can bet your pretty pound of pennies we here at the Trendom offices spent the entire work day viewing that video on repeat. So what were our favorite moments? You mean besides the entire video? Well, here are some of our top picks…
When the opening scene took us back to the very beginning and ripped our chests open and tore out our hearts and then smashed them into a million trillion billion tiny little One Direction loving pieces.
A MILLION BILLION TRILLION TINY LITTLE “WE’RE PUTTING YOU THROUGH AS A GROUP” PIECES!!!
Yep, that was the first scene in the video. Can’t even remember how we made it through the rest of the video cause, well, you know, our hearts…were in a million billion trillion we love these boys so much they’re so fluffy I wanna scream pieces… not to be dramatic or anything.
When they were just cuddly little babies going on the road for the very first time and our fetus OT5 hearts… well, you know the rest.
We’re not crying, you are!
When we saw clips from the early days of LiLo and the tiny shattered pieces of our LiLo loving hearts were set are on fire.
When fetus Niall gave us a glimpse of Nighttime Neil years before he made his radio debut.
Nighttime Neil. Get it.
When we witnessed fetus Liam with his hair full of secrets do his very first successful mic flip and OH MY GOD WHY DOES THIS HURT SO MUCH!?!?!?!
HE MAKES MIC FLIPS SEEM AS EASY AS BREATHING NOW AND WE JUST WATCHED FOOTAGE OF HIM LEARNING HOW TO DO IT!?!? BREATHING IS NO LONGER EASY PLZ SEND HELP.
When Niam stroked each other ever so softly.
Now that we’ve written those words down and read them back out loud, they don’t quite sound how we meant them. We swear we’re not perverts.
When we saw the supple bare skin of shirtless Lirry in the days before either of them had tattoos.
Again, we’re not perverts. We swear.
When Lirry became backpacking tourists and fulfilled all of our hopes and dreams ever.
When they slipped this Zouis moment in and we had flashbacks to Spring 2015.
We don’t wanna talk about it.
When this cheeky little Harry gave us this cheeky little laugh and made our hearts light with laughter again.
We’re naming our firstborn children Dimple. Seems like the right thing to do.
When we saw this throwback of OT5 collapsing to the floor.
Reminds us of the way we can’t help but collapse from too many feels every time we see fetus flashback clips like these.
The “shit, I’ve got chlamydia” moment.
If you didn’t get that one, you should do some fandom research.
When these little bundles of fetus 1D joy were in the studio giggling in between session takes because their little fetus 1D hearts were so full of fetus 1D joy.
Fetus 1D gives us life.
When Niall took Harry from behind IN A HUG. A HUG PEOPLE.
Now who’s the pervert? Not us! That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.
When our eyes were blessed with a view of Narry peeing together. BLESSED.
That’s right. Bandmates that pee together stay together.
That’s a saying right?
Bless up, Narry. Bless up.
When we fast forwarded to present day to see a blessed up Narry doing some celebratory dancing.
Cause once you’ve done a pee together you should celebrate with a dance, duh.
When this mad scientist / singing frog combo happened:
When Sexy Spexy Niall existed.
Seriously. All he had to do was exist. That was enough.
Add in the way he leaned into the camera, aka aggressively stared into our souls, and it was too much to handle.
When this lace shirt ruined our lives.
Don’t talk to us. Just… don’t. Don’t.
When the boyband that couldn’t dance proved they had some moves.
Well, sort of. Relatively speaking. They’re all moving, so…
They’re sort of in sync, right? Don’t answer that, just repeat after us: “The boyband of my time, One Direction, they just had fun and they’re just normal guys but terrible, terrible dancers.”
When we got to see some pretty terrible but totally lovable dancing from the boyband that can’t dance…
We had an impeccably executed group bounce:
Yep, that’s right. The Can-Can. We’ve placed bets as to whose idea this was.
We don’t need to place bets on whose idea this one was. *ahem* Harry *ahem*
And this little nonchalant moment that maybe could be sort of classified as almost dancing? Maybe?
Either way, we’re not complaining.
When we saw the boys in awe of the massive crowds they were drawing.
Don’t be modest, boys, you’re stars!
When we got flashbacks of epic on stage moments.
EPIC. ON. STAGE. MOMENTS.
Of course, those on stage wouldn’t be as epic without the devoted crowd on the other end.
When we were sucked into a wormhole in space because they showed a montage of all of their music videos over the last five years.
Their music videos have ruined our lives, to be honest.
And last but not least, when they destroyed our very souls by closing the video with some of their last hugs on stage before they stepped away for hiatus.
Yeah, this last moment wasn’t one of our top picks.
*screams in please don’t leave us we miss you but also have fun and enjoy your break you deserve it omg we’re so torn are we sad or happy or bittersweet or oh god how are we gonna make it through this break*
Now that we got that out of our systems (ha, you thought—you should probably check in on our general welfare tomorrow), enjoy a bunch of screenshots of the boys making funny faces as they sing their hearts out to us in the music video:
