There are a few things I can tell you after watching the One Direction promo for the VMAs. Most notable, is that it’s pretty darn cheesy, but cheesy in a good way. For one thing, a good portion of the ad is shot in slow motion, which allows your lingering gaze to settle on Harry’s messy-chic hair or consider Niall’s generally playful nature (jumping on Liam’s back, mock-punching Louis).
Then we get individual shots of each of them looking dashing enough to distract your eyes from the random, animated background behind them. The script isn’t all that engaging, but we’re like “kay whatever” because we’re not really watching for the script right?
One Direction will perform at the 2012 MTV VMAs on Sept. 6.
