The boys have been having a lot of fun with their latest album Take Me Home. After dressing up as sailors, surfer dudes, skiers and “Jail House” inmates for “Kiss You,” it’s no surprise that silliness ensued during filming. Showing some behind the scenes footage, the alternate video shows the guys cracking jokes and joking with one another in between shoots. One thing (no pun intended) is for sure, you’ll have as much fun watching it as they did filming it.
The guys of One Direction love to make silly faces, say ridiculous things, and most of all, show off the most endearing awkward dance moves. I think it’s time to copyright the dance moves of the “Kiss You” video, and give them official names. Lets start, shall we? (source)
The “sexy shimmy”
The “confused Rebecca Black”
The angry mashed potato
The “push away the fake snow”

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.

Once upon a time, there was this really beautiful man named Elvis who made his fans LITERALLY swoon when he performed. You might have heard of him. If not, that’s okay, because the modern-day swooners of our time have taken inspiration from Elvis’ “Jail House Rock” for their upcoming music video. Of course, I’m talking about One Direction.
The boy band has been teasing their fans for the past few days with snippets of their latest single “Kiss You.” Based on the footage from the Bring Me to 1D contest, the guys are seen doing strange things on a motorcycle, prancing around in a jail, and dancing on surf boards. This all makes sense.
In the meantime, whilst we wait anxiously for the full video to come out, the guys have blessed us with a convenient lyric video for the song. And I will be conveniently humming this to myself for the rest of my life in a non-apologetic manner.
Listen to “Kiss You” here:
Anyone who had tickets to the season nine grand finale of X-Factor UK on Sunday (Dec. 9) was dayam lucky because Rihanna AND One Direction KILLED their live performances.
Before James Arthur was crowned as victor, Rihanna did an emotional performance of “Stay.” Her vocals were flawless and you can tell she really taps into the emotion of the song each time she sings it — it’s clear she’s evolving as an artist.
X-Factor alum One Direction also performed their soon to be third single “Kiss You.” There was an awkward moment when Zayn’s microphone cut out but it also spurred him to hilariously rant to Harry after the performance around the five minute mark.
