One Direction wants to “Kiss You” in their music video and you DEFINITELY want to kiss them back (or so we assume). What are we really saying? Be prepared to make out with your computer screen when you see their brand new video. In the Vaughn Arnell-directed video, the guys pay homage to The King of Rock himself, surfing, skiing, riding motorbikes and sailing.
Arnell, who’s the same mind behind “Live While We’re Young” and “Little Things,” was inspired by Elvis movies like Blue Hawaii, Roustabout and Jail House Rock. They even don dapper vintage sailor suits. Oh captain my captain! Who would not be on a ship sailed by the boys?
Arnell told MTV the music video is different, and less location based like “What Makes You Beautiful” and “Live While We Are Young,” because it’s all done in studio. There are even some inception shots where we see the filming of the guys being filmed. So of course, this music video is packed with the boys’ awkward facial expressions and spastic hand gestures…was that supposed to be a fist pump Louis? It also seems Liam is pretty confused by the Macarena at one point. It’s okay, they make up for it with many shippable moments — Harry groping Zayn’s man-boobs and Zayn giving Harry a smooch. Gif that Zarry shippers.
The boys themselves called the music video “pure stupidity.” Good public relation skills boys. Since they go shirtless, you get to relive that amazing sex-riot from that day they spent in Australia. Prepare to fangirl.
