That's one makeover - Niall as you've never seen him before
If you haven’t already watched the video for One Direction’s Best Song Ever, it’s time for you to join the millions who have.
The official Vevo video hit a record-breaking 12.3 million views in 24 hours and is already close to smashing the 43 million mark.
There has been nothing but praise for the five guys’ latest project, a music video which sees them taking on a series of bizarre characters.
Speaking to Heat, director Ben Winston said the script was written in under an hour with the boys’ friend funny-man James Corden.
“I’ve been really excited by the reaction-both 1D fans and people who aren’t-seem to be enjoying it,” he said.
Niall Horan takes on the role of studio executive Harvey, his baby-faced looks transformed into a grey-haired middle-aged man.
Harry steals the show as Marcel the marketing geek as Liam Payne becomes Leeroy the choreographer and Louis Tomlinson plays Jonny, another studio executive.
The gold medal goes to Zayn Malik, however, who spent two and a half hours getting transformed into Veronica, the “sexy assistant”.
The single has yet to knock Avicii from the number one spot in the charts.
